Banana Muffins are pleasant spongy cakes made by baking a mix of mashed banana, flour, butter & sugar. Banana Muffins Recipe is simple & easy to make and loved by even people who do not like banana. Banana Muffins are a nice choice for weekend relaxation both by baking & relishing.
I know many of you might get surprised when I say I dont like bananas in their true form. The only disguise of banana I can have is in the form of milkshakes but after trying these banana muffins I changed my mind. I found the url while googling for banana muffins and I instantly tried it by halfing the measurements and it came out soo good.

When I tried it for the first time the top was cracked, though I took these set of pics, I thought I have gone wrong somewhere so didnt mean to post it. Once when I saw banana muffins in a famous english bakery here the top was fully cracked, also after discussing with friends I made up mind that I had not gone wrong anywhere. And now me and hubby who are so aversed to banana enjoy these muffins to the core.
My hubby tasted these muffins and just loved it that he wanted another batch the next day itself 🙂 Its kind of addictive the vanilla essence with the banana flavour tastes out of the world. Though vanilla essence is not given in the orginal recipe we liked the blend of flavours so I recommend adding it.
As usual my texture showing technique.
My only plight while baking muffins is the muffin liners as the ones I had were too small for the muffin tray I own so this time I didnt use liners at all. Now finally I’ve found one that fits my tray though not so colorful and fancy. Wait for my other muffin posts to see them in action.

Wow, I made these yesterday and they came out super yummy, thanks for this great recipe. When I was making the batter, it was really thick and I didn't know if that was how it should be, I wanted to come running to you asking if it was okay, you should probably have a hotline number I guess 😛
@UmmSumayya : Ha ha 🙂 With what I remember the batter was thick to be spooned not runny…So guess ur consistency was right, no worries.
Thanks a lot for the recipe. I tried this and it came out really well! It tastes yummy but it does rise like yours, it always falls flat – I've tried it 4 times already! :(, with the same measurements & settings both with oil & butter with fresh baking powder & soda. Some how its not working for me. Anything suggestion would be great! Going to try your eggless chocolate muffuns now 🙂 Thanks, Priya

Hi… I tried this recipe few times. Was awesome but only once the cake wasn't raise up n sticky… taste also wasn't good. Can I know what is the reason? Is that bcs of type of banana used?
Not really sure Uthaya
I just got chance to try out the muffins..I used the baking cups in the pan..but the muffins got sticked to the cups and Im not able to take it in a perfect shape..I don't know where it went wrong..do I ant to grease the baking cups with oil or butter???
No I usually dont oil the cups…if the cakes are uncooked then it may stick
Hi sharmi… What type of oil we can use suggest me some brands. Once I tried using normal cooking oil, but its a perfect flop… Thanks in advance
I use cooking oil or olive oil for baking
