I have some bananas that need to be baked up into something yummy. So I am combining a couple recipes and hoping they come out ok.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 overripe bananas
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Mix together and set aside.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and lightly butter 2 muffin tins.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. Mash 2 of the bananas with a fork in a small bowl so they still have a bit of texture. With an electric mixer fitted with a wire whisk, whisk the remaining bananas and sugar together for at least 3 minutes. Add the melted butter, eggs, and vanilla and beat well, scraping down the sides of the bowl once or twice. Mix in the dry ingredients just until incorporated. Fold in the mashed bananas with a rubber spatula. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins to fill them about halfway.
Top the muffins with the nut topping.
Bake until a toothpick stuck in the muffins comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before turning the muffins out. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Ok these were incredibly moist and yummy! As you can see from the second picture, I didn't mash the bananas to much.
