Banana Bread (Muffins)



I first made these when I was a new nanny in New Jersey on Halloween. I completely felt like I was out of place with nothing to do because both parents were home so I decided to open Martha Stewart's cook book and make her banana bread. It turned out better than any banana bread I have ever had and I have yet in 15 years found one that is better. I have made them in one large loaf, 4 mini loafs, muffins and now this time mini muffins. I this is not exactly her recipe because I use less salt now and I don't like nuts in my banana bread so if you want her exact recipe go to her site.

Ingredients

1 1/2 Cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
I stick butter room temperature
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 bananas smashed or 1 cup very ripe bananas
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
Directions

Pre heat oven 350 degrees. Combine flour, salt and baking soda and set aside.
Cream butter, sugar, and eggs with whisk. Combine dry ingredients with butter mixture until all incorporated.
Add bananas, sour cream and vanilla. stir together well. Using ice cream scoop add a small scoop into each cup. Bake for 15 minutes.


Try these and tell me if you have a better recipe because I would love to try it out.

  15. I use yogurt in my banana bread. I'd love to try your recipe to see the difference. I don't use butter in mine but hey, you gotta live a little. I know these would disappear in my kitchen. They look "delish". :-)

    1. Yogurt is a great healthy way to make them. I tell you what I will make them with yogurt and you make yours with butter and let each other know how they turned out. :)

  20. You can't go wrong with Marta Stewart! These look very moist and the sour cream can only make it better. Nice!

  22. Thanks for visiting my blogs. I am printing some of your recipes to try. I have made the MS banana bread and wondered if your 1C sour cream instead of 1/2C (as in hers )is what you used in your muffins. I agree the salt she uses is way too much. I only use 1/4t. I may make these banana muffins this afternoon as I am out of nuts anyway.
