Banana bread has always been a favorite of mine. Today I made Banana Bread muffins because I was short on time, and they bake about 25 minutes faster. They are also easier to divvy out if you are gifting them to multiple neighbors (which I’m planning to do) than a loaf of bread would be.
I find it a little weird to give someone a half a loaf of bread but not weird at all to give them 6 muffins wrapped up nicely on a paper plate with cellophane. For these reasons, I opted to make muffins today with my banana bread recipe. I thought I’d share it with you too…
1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Mix eggs, banana, 1/2 C. butter, sugar, and sour milk in a mixer on medium speed for 10 seconds or until mixed.
2. In a separate bowl stir dry ingredients
3. On slow mixing speed, add dry ingredients to banana mixture until mixed. Batter will be lumpy. Mix in nuts if you choose to.
5. Bake on 375 F for 20 minutes or until sides are golden brown and the muffin springs up when lightly pressed down on.
Allow to cool slightly.
Use a butter knife to remove them from the tin.
Serve warm with butter.
