Banana Walnut Muffin

For this week tea-time snack, I have decided to bake banana walnut muffins since we got some good and cheap banana from Pete’s Frootique yesterday . This recipe is pretty simple and yield about 12 muffins. Sorry for not having any photos but you can view it from here. The only modification I made to the original recipe is to reduce the sugar by 1/4 cup as I figured out that banana is sweet in its own way. And this is absolutely true!


  • 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed DSCN6701
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp espresso or strong coffee (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (toasted or raw)

1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl.

2 Mix in the sugar, egg, espresso and vanilla.

3 Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in.

4 Add the flour, mix until it is just incorporated. Fold in the chopped walnuts.

5 Pour mixture into a prepared muffin tin. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Check for doneness with a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin. If it comes out clean, it's done. Cool on a rack.
