blueberry banana muffins

Warning: for full food attack, click to enlarge

So, what yummy thing did I bake at the manor this weekend? These yumalicious muffins. The banana makes them super moist, and adds a delightfully subtle background flavor. Okay. I admit it. I ate three.


1 stick butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup milk
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups fresh (I used) or frozen blueberries

Cream butter and sugar, add eggs, mix in bananas and milk. In separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Add moist to dry ingredients and mix only until batter is moist. (Not too much or muffins will be rubbery.) Carefully stir in the whole blueberries. Spoon into greased muffin tin and bake 25 minutes at 350.

  4. Well aren't you the little baker! Sounds great. You know me... I do the banana walnut bread with tons of chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. Heat up a slice and serve it with vanilla ice cream?!?!?!?!!?

  11. I'm so happy you ate 3. I always feel I should only have a taste; feel guilty if I have one, which never seems to satisfy.

  12. Oh, damn! I'm drinking a big glass of milk, looking at your muffin photo with envy. Ooops....just licked the laptop screen!!

  13. Willow. What is a 'stick of butter'? 250 gms maybe?

    Can't get blueberries here in France, but I can substitute. Cro.

  14. Dear Willow, They do indeed look positively delicious. Sadly, as my kitchen skills are non existent, I shall pass on them!

  18. That is the most enticing picture I've seen in a long time: make me break my diet, why don't you!

  19. Willow my friend, is this fair? Is this nice Trying to put sixty pound on me when I have just lost thirty, yes thirty pounds in water! Like carrying a toddler around with me day and night. No wonder my heart could not cope and I could not breath. So I will be standing firm and not baking your scrummy, yummy, too delicious muffins . . . well at least till our blueberry season.

  22. I made bran muffins with blueberries and they were really good. I think that now I will have to try these ones too.

    They do look so good. I was going to make blueberry cobbler this weekend and so maybe I will also have to make these too. Blueberries are so good.

    Although the Blackberry Cobbler I made was awfully good too. Dang it, I just enjoy all the berries. Berries are the best.

    God bless.

  26. Mmm good recipe. Cinnamon lowers blood sugar so says Dr. Oz. Bananas have potassium. Love yogurt and muffins in the a.m. Has anyone heard of Kefir yogurt? I cannot find in regular grocery stores. Jane Jones

  27. Cro: 1 stick of butter = 113.5 gr or 1/4 pound or 4 ounce or 1/2 cup

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oooh, they sound good! Hey--they're good for you. Bananas have all that potassium, and blueberries--well, they're just chock full of all kinds of good things, so have another, (if there are any left.)

  48. Your blog is looking fabulous Willow. I wish you had a search function. I want to look up some of your past posts!

  49. Almost identical to the recipe I baked last week here in New Zealand using frozen blueberries - yes they are delicious and, as you said the banana makes them so moist.

    Love your site

    ReplyDelete
  50. I made them yesterday and they're fantastic--thank you! I like that the recipe made a full 15 regular-sized muffins, too.

  51. Hausfrau, glad to hear you enjoyed them!!

    Leslie, yes, I do have a search window at the top left of my blog! Hope you found what you were looking for!

  52. Made these muffins. Mine sure didn't look pretty & high like yours. They were flat but tasted wonderful!! Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Those look so good Willow, but blueberries were $9.50 for a tiny 100gm. punnet yesterday @ the Market. There's a pawn shop next door to the Fruit & Veg. shop, now I know why!!

  54. Have saved this delicious looking recipe. Thanks for translating the american "stick" of butter for me. I will try this with some blackcurrants I have in my freezer from last summer. It's midwinter here in New Zealand.
