Yummy Banana Muffins :)

I had some bananas that were getting too ripe, so I decided to hunt down a recipe for banana bread. I found this great recipe, but I ended up turning them into muffins, and they are delicious! The name kind of throws you off, but they actually are quite wonderful.

Here's the original recipe:

Sour Cream Banana Bread


1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup butter
3 cups white sugar
3 eggs
6 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking soda
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease four 7x3 inch loaf pans. In a small bowl, stir together 1/4 cup white sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Dust pans lightly with cinnamon and sugar mixture.
In a large bowl, cream butter and 3 cups sugar. Mix in eggs, mashed bananas, sour cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Mix in salt, baking soda and flour. Stir in nuts. Divide into prepared pans.
Bake for 1 hour, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

I halved the recipe (this one makes 4 loaves) and instead of loaves put them in a muffin pan. I baked the muffins for 20 minutes at 350 and it was perfect!

Hope you enjoy!
