This is a rich, fattening, gooey, moist muffin. Don’t make it if you don’t enjoy that sort of thing. For my family, I always double the recipe, for 24 muffins. I make this in my stand mixer.
Cream together 1 c. sugar and 1/2 c. butter.
Mix in 2 eggs and 3 mashed bananas (mash well before adding).
Add and mix in: 1 1/4 c. flour (or 1/2 cup wheat flour, 3/4 cup white), 1 tsp. baking soda, and 1/2 tsp. salt.
Make a few muffins for the kid who likes them plain. Then add about 1/2 or 3/4 cup of chocolate chips. Make a few more muffins for the kids who don’t like nuts. Finally, add about 1/3 cup of chopped walnuts and make the rest for the grown-ups. (If you and your kids aren’t as fussy as mine, just add 1 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup chopped nuts to the whole thing. Or you can add raisins, or some other combination.)
Bake for about 25-30 minutes at 325 degrees. If you prefer a large loaf instead, leave it in for an hour.
Is it hard to read a recipe when the writer can’t stop making parenthetical comments the whole time? Just checking.
