Wet Ingredients

  • 1 or 2 ripe bananas
  • One egg
  • 1/3 cup melted butter or margarine
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tbsp. strong coffee
  • Milk or buttermilk

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


To make the most incredible muffins, you have to mix the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients, separately. In a small bowl, mash the bananas thoroughly with a fork and stir in the egg. Mix the other wet ingredients also.

In a large bowl, put the dry ingredients and mix them with a spoon. The ingredients should be mixed properly so that the baking soda should be completely distributed through the flour. Now, fold in the wet ingredients. You need to mix it for about 8 to 10 times carefully until the batter is mixed together. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In the meanwhile, prepare the muffin tin by spraying it with Pam. If you do not have Pam, you can grease them lightly with shortening. Spoon the (lumpy) batter into the muffin tin – it is okay if you end up filling the holes all the way to the top. Sprinkle some sugar on the top. Sugar in the muffin makes a glaze, as they bake and this gives it a really fantastic taste.

Put the muffins into the preheated oven and set the timer for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, check the muffins with a fork. If the fork come out clean then it is ready otherwise you need to bake them for another 5 minutes. Different ovens require separate time for baking the muffin, see how much your oven requires for baking the muffin.

Let them cool for about 5 to 10 minutes, and then use a knife to carefully lift them out of the muffin tin. You can keep the muffins in the tin for 10 minutes so they will stay warm. However, do not keep them for long as they will become difficult to get out if they are too cold while still in the tin.
