Mini Banana Muffins

I'm always taking my favorite banana bread recipe and trying it out in different incarnations to see how it will cook up. This time I made mini banana muffins. Oh - these were sooooo good. You couldn't eat just one.

I just looked back and am completely surprised that I haven't posted this recipe up yet. I was given this recipe in my 7th grade home-ec class (that would be fall of '84) and I've been using it ever since. Thank you Mrs. Pile!

Best Ever Banana Bread
1c sugar
2 eggs (well beaten)
1/2c butter
3 tbsp. sour cream (the secret ingredient!)
3 large ripe bananas (mashed)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. soda
2c flour (you can also go 1/2 & 1/2 white and wheat flour if you'd like, it doesn't change the texture at all)

Pre-heat oven to 350'F. Grease bread pan, combine ingredients, pour into pan and bake for 1 hour.

If making mini muffins, check after 10 minutes - if they spring back when you touch them, they're done.

If making regular size muffins, check after 20 minutes.


  1. YUM!! Banana bread is my addiction.. :) Love the ideas of this with Sour Cream. I make my birthday cake every year as a Sour Cream cake: http://petitechef.wordpress.com/recipes/sour-cream-chocolate-chip-pound-cake-marielles-b-day-cake/
    it's to DIE FOR! I've had it as my cake for the past 10 or so years and we have to make 2 because everyone wants it for breakfast the next morning! YUM!

    Thanks for the recipe!!

  2. Thanks for the recipe link. My wedding cake was a sour cream white, and I've always wanted to find a good recipe!
