The Best Ever Banana Muffin

The Best Ever Banana Muffin

– – – – – – – – – – 

Today my thermometer read -31.1!  It is so cold here, and I don’t want to do anything but bake.  So today I am going to use up the unappetizing pile of brownish bananas on my counter.  I have tried many a banana bread/muffin recipe, and trust me these should be easy to make, I mean they are a North American staple, but I have made terrible, and I mean terrible banana bread.  Tasting like fish kind of banana bread.  Really.

But rejoice!  I have found the banana muffin recipe.  No fail, always yummy, so easy to make.  I have adapted it from the Best of Bridge cookbook series, and made it my own, with a couple of changes.  One being, removing the nutmeg (I hate nutmeg), and instead I used cinnamon. Also I have put in a yum-yummy centre of Nutella goodness.  So good!  Try these – you will love them I promise!

The Best Ever Banana Muffin

  • Yield: 12 muffins 1x


  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (no more than 1 cup)
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda (dissolved in 2 tsp hot water)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Nutella (optional)


  1. Cream together margarine and sugar.
  2. Add eggs one at a time, then mashed bananas.
  3. Add baking soda/water mix and the vanilla, then combine.
  4. Mix flour and cinnamon in a separate bowl, then add to banana mix and combine.

Make the muffins, one of two ways:

  1. If you want a Nutella centre, fill your muffin cups about a 1/4 full, then add about a teaspoon of Nutella into the centre. Top off the muffin cup with more batter, to make the muffin cups about 1/2 full in total.
  2. Or if you just want regular banana muffins, fill the muffin cup about 3/4 full.
  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

These muffins are delicious with the Nutella centre, but you don’t have to add it either.  I actually prefer just a plain old delicious banana muffin.  These are a great snack for the kids lunches too!
