Food For Thought:
These muffins are divine. They are fluffy and banana-y and everything that is right with the world. Please enjoy liberally!
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/4 - 1/2 cup chopped nuts, depending on your affinity for crunch
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup mashed banana (about 2 small bananas)
1/2 cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 350 and prepare 12-cup muffin pan (either with paper liners or grease the pan). Stir together flour, nuts, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together brown sugar, cooled melted butter, mashed bananas, sour cream and eggs until thoroughly combined. Fold the wet mixture into the dry mixture just until combined; do not over-mix or you will have banana hockey pucks! Divide among muffin cups and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Happy Friday everyone!
