Ingredients

  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, divided
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks
  • 2 overripe medium-size bananas, cut into chunks

Directions

Heat the over to 350 degrees F.

Cream the butter, vanilla, and sugar together with a stand mixer set on medium-high speed. Add the egg and mix well.

Sift the flour, baking powder, and the baking soda together in another bowl.

Add 1/4 cup of sour cream to the butter mixture and then add half of the dry ingredient mixture. Mix well and then repeat with the remaining sour cream and the remaining dry ingredient mixture until the batter is well-combined. (Be sure to end with the dry ingredients.)

Fold in the chocolate chunks and the bananas until evenly mixed. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins. Bake for 25—30 minutes. Stick a toothpick in the middle of one of the muffins. If it comes out clean, the muffins are done.

Banana Muffin Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Banana Muffin Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
