Pecan Banana Muffins

What wonderful muffins these are.  They have such a great rise and shape to them, along with a beautiful coloring and texture.   Remember that we don't just eat food with our mouths, but also with our eyes.  And eye candy couldn't taste any better than these do. 

1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of real unsalted butter
1 egg (beaten)
1 tsp. of vanilla
1/2 c. sour cream
3 ripe bananas (mashed)
2 cups of flour
1 tsp. of baking soda
1 tsp. of baking powder
1/2 cup of chopped pecans

-Preheat oven to 350*.  In a large bowl cream the sugar and butter; beat in egg, vanilla, sour cream and mashed bananas.  In a small bowl mix together the flour, baking soda and baking powder.  Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture by small batches.  Once it is thoroughly combined, fold in the pecans.  Bake in a well-greased muffin pan (they will rise up over the edge) for about 30 minutes.  Makes 1 dozen large muffins.   Enjoy!


  1. Could you cook this in a loaf pan to make bread, or will it crumble too easily?

  2. Helena-I have not tried it that way....but with the texture of the muffins I do think that it would work. Let me know if you try it out :)
