Banana Muffins

Miles of Bananas

So, now that we all know not to try this recipe as anything other muffins, shall we discover how to bake the muffins I grew up on? Good.

2 cups flour
2 3/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2-3 overripe bananas

PREHEAT the oven to 350 degrees F

MIX flour and baking soda
SET aside

BEAT sugar, shortening, vanilla, and eggs at medium speed

MASH bananas

ALTERNATE adding flour mixture and bananas to the sugar mixture. Begin and end with the flour mixture.

BLEND well after each addition.

DROP into greased or lined muffin tins
BAKE for 20 minutes

My Thoughts
1. You can easily add nuts, if you prefer them, just mix them in right before you drop the batter into the muffin tins.

2. I do not add salt to this recipe because I like to butter my muffins and that gives them enough salt. If you would rather, you can add 1/4tsp of salt to the flour mix.
