Banana Muffins

"Very, very good cake-like muffins. I got the recipe off I added the nuts and the raisins, which I think is an improvement."

  1. These were quick, easy & tasty - the raisins & pecans were a nice touch! Since there are only 2 people in our household (and I only have 1 muffin tin), I scaled the recipe to 12 muffins. That means 1 1/3 egg - so I just used 1 extra large & it worked. Thanx Vicki!
  2. These made a great breakfast for my parents who were staying with me. So easy to do too! Thanks!
  3. Excellent !! So moist and the nuts and raisins were a perfect addition. Baked as printed and they turned out perfect. I did make a mistake and didn't cream butter and sugar because I mixed the sugar into the flour before reading all the directions. However, they still baked perfect with my error. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you for posting.
  4. Soft and moist, great recipe! Kids loved them for breakfast.
  5. Very easy and very good. 'Nuff Said!


  1. GREAT muffins! I did make a few replacements: whole wheat flour for white; 1.5 cups chocolate chips instead of raisons or nuts; margarine instead of butter. These were very moist, fluffy, and all of that other good stuff. I will be making these again, thanks!
  2. Very good muffins! I wanted to have banana cranberry muffins, so I substituted cranberries for the raisins. Moist and yummy. My family ate them up fast!
  3. These were really good! I made them without the raisins and used walnuts instead of pecans - my husband loved them! Thanks :)


I live in the Phoenix area where the sun always shines. I love to cook and garden. I am a "gadget freak" and seem to buy every cooking tool that comes on the market. Currently, I'm playing with pressure cooker cuisine. If I could take a month off, I'd go to Italy and go to 3-4 different cooking schools. My favorite cookbook is "The New Professional Chef" by the Culinary Institute of America. The dog in the photo is Scout, who just happens to be the best dog in the world.
