These muffins are so good, that you'll need to make a double batch just to please everyone in your family! lol
This recipe came straight from my husband's grandmother, who, legend has it, makes the most awesomest muffins. That is, until I started making these. My hubs, absolute love of my life, says that these are HANDS DOWN the BEST muffins in the world! He goes hog-wild eating them, so I can only assume that he is telling the truth.
The recipe below is for one batch, or enough batter to make about 12 muffins. I usually double the recipe because I know that these muffins will go quickly, especially because hubs and the kids just love them. That gives them all some extra muffins to eat the next day.
Banana Muffins (this version is slightly different that hubs' grandma's. I add more banana than she does. Maybe that's the secret ingredient?)
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup shortening
2 Tbsp sour cream
2 very ripe bananas
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
cinnamon & sugar
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 17-20 minutes. I usually turn the muffin pan around halfway through baking to ensure the muffins bake evenly.
