Buttermilk Clouds

Buttermilk Banana Nut Muffins

All my life...all...I have been searching for the perfect Banana Nut Muffin recipe. And last night I found it. Last Saturday I found a little set of clay pots from Southern Living. They are so friggin' cute that I can't stand it. There are 6 of them. And they don't have drainage holes in the bottom. As soon as I saw them, the bananas on my counter popped into my head. And I knew. Yes, I knew. And it so happened that I also had a new recipe to try. So. Here is it. The best Banana Nut Muffin recipe ever. EVER! I think the magic happened with the buttermilk.

Oh. Most of the time my banana bread turned out gooey in the middle. I do believe that these little clay pots cured that problem. The middles were done, the outsides were not burnt and they rose sooooooooo beautifully! Big excitement in our house. Yes sir.


1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup mashed bananas (3 medium sized bananas)
4 tablespoons buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1. Grease and flour 1 large loaf pan (9 1/4 X 5 1/4-inch) or whatever combination of pans you’d like. I used a mini loaf pan and a 8 1/2 X 4 1/2 loaf pan. You can also make banana muffins with this recipe, if you wish...which is the option I chose. And I also only sprayed the pots with oil. No flour. Set pans aside.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs, mashed bananas, buttermilk, and vanilla until the batter is well mixed.
3. Add in the flour, baking powder, salt and soda. Mix until well combined. Divide batter into greased and floured pans and bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
4. Let bread cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Loosen the bread with a knife and carefully remove from pan. Finish cooling on rack. Slice and serve once cooled.

    These look really good I'm going to give making them a try tonight after I run up to the store to buy some ingrediants. And i'll see how they come out thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Do you think it would come out as good if I didn't use real butter? I'm on a special diet and I can't really have the butter. Any alteratives I can use?
