Recipe of the Week – Banana Praline Muffins

Banana Nut MuffinsThese moist muffins are a hit with guests every time we serve them. In response to many requests, here is the recipe (from page 40 of the inn’s cookbook)


  • 3 Tbl. dark brown sugar
  • 1 Tbl sour cream
  •  ½ cup broken walnuts or pecans
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 1 ¼ cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt .
  • more nuts

Preheat oven to 400. In a small bowl, mix together, brown sugar and sour cream. Stir in nuts and set aside. In a large bowl mash bananas, add egg, sugar and oil mix well. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients to banana mixture and stir just until moistened (I usually add a handful of nuts to batter at this point.)

Spoon in to greased muffin tins (I use paper liners) and top with a spoonful of reserved nut mixture. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
