Banana Nut Muffins

I was wandering the asiles of HomeSense the other week month, and I came across these fun little silicone muffin cups.

Silicone muffin cups

There were also pink and purple triangle ones, which I completely regret not getting now. At the time however, I could not justify both sets when I had yet to try them out in my own kitchen. Of course the moment I used them for the first time I was completely in love with them. Now I can't image life without them. There is no more running out of those annoying little paper inserts, that I can never get apart, half way into a recipe. Oh, and they clean up so easily too!

I hoped by chance the others were still when I ventured back, but alas some other lucky sole snatched them up. Lucky them!

Banana Nut Muffins

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • zest of orange
  • 1/2 cup walnuts

Banana Nut Muffins

Preheat oven to 375 F. Combine in bowl flour, baking soda and salt. Partially mash two fof the bananas. Then with beater whip them with sugar until light and fluffy. Add melted butter, eggs and vanilla.

Mix in dry ingredients stirring slow, and so still slightly lumpy. Fold in zest, nuts and finally banana in chunks.

Pour into muffin tins and back for 18-20 minutes.

I have always wanted to try those out but didn't know if they would work. I think I am going to pick them up for sure now next time I'm out.
