Made exactly as written. Very good basic muffin. Next time I'll try nuts or chocolate chips.

It is no wonder why this basic banana muffin recipe has such high reviews! It was quick to put together and we loved the fact that banana was the dominant flavor. Made according to directions expect that I used half white and half brown sugar. Added chopped walnuts to the tops. It was delightful.
