Banana Bread Muffins

Banana Bread Muffins

My son and I made these banana bread muffins because we had three very ripe bananas and a lot of time on our hands due to the Coronavirus quarantine. The batter was super easy to throw together and my son did an excellent job of making it. I sprinkled some turbinado sugar on top of each muffin prior to baking which gives the muffin tops a bit of crispness. We baked the muffins for 5 minutes at a higher heat then reduced the heat to finish cooking which helps create the high muffin dome. Several muffins disappeared after lunch and everyone raved about them.

How to Make Banana Bread Muffins

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a muffin tray with cooking spray.

Prepare the banana bread muffins by whisking together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together in a large bowl until well combined.

In a separate bowl whisk together the well-mashed banana, sour cream, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla until very well combined.

Lightly fold the banana mixture into the flour mixture with a rubber spatula until just combined.

Pour the batter equally into the muffin pan filling them to the top. Sprinkle some coarse turbinado sugar on top of each muffin.

Place into the oven and bake for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees and continue to cook for 13-15 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool in the pan for a few minutes before putting them on a wire rack to finish cooling. Serve and enjoy. 

Side Note: Starting the baking at a higher temperature then reducing it helps make the muffin dome.
