  • Muffin Tin
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray
  • Small Mixing Bowl


  • ½ cup butter (or margarine)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mashed bananas 3-4 bananas
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups flour
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chopped nuts (optional - I like walnuts best!)

Optional Almond Glaze

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 5 Tablespoons milk
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar together.
  • Add eggs into mixing bowl and beat. Add in mashed bananas, milk, and lemon juice.
  • In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients and then add to wet ingredients. If using, fold in nuts.

If Baking Loaf:

  • Bake in well-greased bread loaf pan for 1 hour at 350 degrees F. Makes 1 loaf.

If Making Muffins:

  • Bake in greased muffin tins (or use baking cups) for about 20-22 minutes. This recipe will make about 16 muffins.
  • If Making Mini Muffins:
  • Bake in greased mini muffin tin (or use mini baking cups) for about 11-13 minutes. This recipe will make about 48 mini muffins.
  • To make optional glaze:
  • Mix together powdered sugar with milk and almond extract until smooth. Drizzle on top of muffins or loaf of bread. I like to put the glaze on while the muffins are still warm so that it melts into the bread.


  • The glaze on top is optional they taste great with or without it.
