Stephanie cooks: Banana Muffins

Wednesday, February 9, 2011

The last time Izzy came to visit, she made the most wonderful banana muffins.  I've been begging her for the recipe ever since and I finally had a chance to make them earlier this week.  They are so moist and so tasty!  After I baked them and let them cool, I froze them.  They make a quick, easy breakfast - just wrap the frozen muffin in a paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds.


Banana Muffins

What you need:

  • 3/4 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large extra ripe banana
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

How you make it:

  1. Heat the oven at 350 °F.
  2. Mix together the yogurt and baking soda and let sit for a few minutes. 
  3. In a separate bowl (or stand mixer), mix together butter, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and bananas until smooth. (It's ok if you still have banana chunks.) 
  4. Add the yogurt/baking soda and keep mixing.
  5. In another bowl, mix together the flour and baking powder.
  6. Add to the banana and yogurt mixture. (Don't add it all at once, pour in about 1/4 of the flour, let it blend in, and then pour some more.)
  7. Pour into a greased muffin pan.
  8. Cook for about 20-25 min. (For a loaf pan, it's 45-55 min.)

I can't believe you shared my secret recipe!!!! Just kidding ;)

To Trina, you can freeze your ripe bananas and use them whenever you have time to make the muffins. I always buy the extra ripe bananas that are about to go bad at the grocery store and freeze them that way I have some on hand whenever I want to make this recipe

let's get acquainted

THE Stephanie
I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
