Banana muffinsBanana Muffins-Banana muffins recipe-How to make banana muffins

Banana is one of my favourite fruits.Though I love eating bananas as such,this time I wanted to try something different with bananas. So I decided to make banana muffins as I remembered watching this on a TV show and had noted down the recipe.I had all the ingredients needed for making banana muffins at home.This was the first muffin I have ever baked and it turned out so well. It was very tasty and delicious.I followed the exact recipe without making any changes except decorating it with slivered almonds.

how to prepare banana muffinsDo try this simple and delicious banana muffins. I did not have a muffin tray but that did not deter me from trying this as I used paper cups for preparing this delicious muffins and that was also successful. I was so delighted as my very first muffins came out so well. You will get 12 muffins for this recipe.

banana muffins recipeMethod

Mash banana well .

Add sugar to it and beat till sugar dissolves.

Add eggs one by one and beat well. ( I used electric hand blender)

Add banana essence and mix it .

Then add flour little by little and fold it gently.(Do not beat after adding flour)

Then add oil and mix it well.

Preheat the oven for 15 minutes.

Now spoon the batter and fill each muffin cups with the batter till 3/4

Top each muffin with slivered almonds.(optional)

Bake for 20 minutes or until the tops are browned.

Insert a toothpick and if it comes out clean, then the muffins are done.

Cool, remove from the cups and serve.

Decorate it with any kind of frosting or toppings if you want but it tasted awesome just like that.

Eggless Banana Muffins

For Eggless banana muffins, replace eggs with 1 cup of milk.

  28. Dear Attu
    Thanks a lot for your appreciations.
    You can try baking banana muffins in cooker but I do not advise you to use paper cups.You can use small steel cups.
    For egg less banana muffins, you can replace eggs with 1 cup of milk.

  29. Will the paper cups are safe to use in baking..little frightening to try out..please clarify

    ReplyDelete
  30. I have baked only in paper cups as you can see. Grease the cups well with butter and dust with flour.You have to be watchful.If you do not have muffin tray, you can try it in paper cups otherwise use your muffin tray.
