Banana Nut Muffin


  • Take a 12 cup Muffin Pan and line them with paper liners.
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Whisk the flour,salt,baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon in a medium bowl and blend it and set aside. This is the dry ingredient.
  • Beat the sugar, eggs, oil and vanilla extract in a large bowl to blend.
  • Add and stir in the banana.
  • Add the dry ingredients and stir just until blended. Do not be tempted to over mix the batter.
  • You can also use a electric mixer for the above steps.
  • Pour the prepared batter in the prepared muffin cups.
  • Bake the muffins on the middle rack until the tops are golden brown for 25 minutes.
  • You can insert a tooth pick/any object to poke the muffin and see that no crumbs are attached. This will help us identify if the muffin is well baked.
  • Transfer the muffins to a rack and cool slightly.
  • You can spread unsalted butter over the muffin to add some frostiness.
  • The muffins may be eaten warm or cooled.

    Your blog is so nice. I wanted to try this banana nut muffin. Can we substitute vegetable oil in this? Also, please let me know if its necessary to add ground cinnamon. Will it make a difference.

      Thanks for the comment. Yes, you can substitute melted butter instead of Vegetable oil. It will alter the taste a bit. Cinnamon adds flavor. If u don’t like the smell of Cinnamon, you can leave it out.

    What do you do if self raising flour is not available?
    and can you send a simple recipe for making pancake without egg?

      @Vijaya, If you don’t have a self raising flour, you can get a regular flour and add 3 tsp of baking powder to 1 cup of flour. I haven’t tried Pancake yet, will try to do one and post.
