Bananarama Mini Muffins

The second morning with our children, we made mini banana muffins together.  All three of our talented and creative children took part in the measuring, mixing, mashing, scooping, and sprinkling.  The results?  Very happy cooks and taste-testers!

One of my girls (Did I really just say that?  It felt so natural… so completely right that I should have girls plural.  You know?) looked down in this picture so I could post it. Remember that I can’t show their full faces until the papers are signed and the deal is sealed.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 1/2 bananas, mashed
  • 3/4 cup white sugar, plus a little extra to sprinkle on the tops before baking
  • 1 large egg or 2 Bantam eggs (Where else can you find recipes which include Bantam eggs?)
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose white flour
  • 1/4 cup graham or whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup melted butter

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and grease the muffin tins.  Mash the bananas and mix in the butter, sugar, and eggs.  Sift the dry ingredients together into a bowl.  Create a well in the wet ingredients and pour in the sifted mixture.  Stir until just moist throughout.  Spoon the batter into the greased mini muffin tins and sprinkle the tops with sugar.  Brown or white sugar works just fine.  Bake for 18-20 minutes.  See?  Easy-peasy.

The kids have been reading your comments and LOVE what you wrote.  I apologize for not being able to make my usual rounds but I have three (soon four) wonderful and precious distractions.  I did show them a few of your blogs and they are very excited that so many of you have written messages to them.  Thank you so much!

Lots of love,

The Razor Family

  • Dawn - How exciting. That recipe is similar to mine I put on my blog last year, but the one I have uses 12 bananas and 6 eggs. I think with your big family you will have to start making the bigger recipe. Z and I actually made them on Thursday.ReplyCancel

  • Jeni Hill Ertmer - Start ’em off right in the kitchen and around the farm so by the time they are ready to leave home, go to college or into the working world, they’ll be well-groomed young versions of Martha Stewart, Rachel Rae, or who the heck is the southern belle cook -can’t think or her name now! Good job though Lacy!ReplyCancel
