Like all my recipes this has been tweaked. I took a recipe from the net resource’s below. But the thing is I used cashews not walnuts. I buy my nuts by the best price and the best time. There are so many recipes that use walnuts that I have re-mixed using other nuts. After all a nut is a nut unless you have an acquired taste to one.
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degree’s and line your muffin tins or grease. Gather your ingredients.
1 1/4 cup white sugar
1 stick softened butter
2 large eggs
1 to 2 cups mashed bananas
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups white flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup chopped nuts
1 cup chocolate chips (I used mini chips)
Make sure your cold ingredients from the refrigerator are room temperature. Mixing warm with cold just makes curdled looking.
Have your oven at 350 egrees and your muffin tin ready.
Sift together the flour and baking soda in a bowl on the side.
In your mixing/mixer bowl place your softened butter and sugar and mix until well blended. Now add your buttermilk, next add your egg’s, next add your banana’s, add your final ingredient your vanilla extract. Beat these ingredients until they are light and fluffy.
Add your nuts and chocolate chips if adding. You can make this recipe with no nuts or chips and it is just as delicious.
Now add half of your dry ingredients using your mixer until just blended. Now by hand add the remaining flour. This batter has the same consistency as waffle batter it is thick but light and airy.
Cook your muffins for 20 minutes and then check them to see if you will need 5 more minutes. I cook mine for 20 minutes then turn the muffin pan to make sure the muffins are cooked even. My stove sometimes is moody and cooks more toward the back then the front. Stupid Oven.
If you have batter but not enough to fill your tins just fill the empty with water this way the muffins cook evenly. Good trick. Be careful taking the tin out the water is hot I know! Ouch!
Let them cool on a rack and do your second batch. To take your warm muffins out of the tin just ease them out with a spoon under the liner or muffin then put them on the rack to cool. There look how pretty and they are super moist.
Butter on the top when eating is a must do!
