  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    14 muffins


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in bananas. Combine flour and baking soda; add to creamed mixture just until moistened. Fold in pecans.
  • Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
Editor's Note
As a substitute for each cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.

    It turned out awesome. Used 1 extra banana that was creamed, 2 tbl vanilla, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg. It was a hit with family and friends. Definitely a must keep recipe. Thanks!

    I make these at least once a month. My husband and I just love 'em! Sometimes I do half the batch with nuts; the other half with semi-sweet chocolate chips for fun.
