Tips on How to Make Banana Muffins:

  • The riper your bananas are, the easier they will be to mash and the better the flavor of your banana muffins will be.  Don’t shy away from brown spots on your banana peels, that’s what you want for this recipe!
  • I recommend mashing your bananas with a fork or with a potato masher. You want them to be well-mashed with very few lumps.
  • I strongly recommend stirring the batter completely by hand. Completely avoid a hand mixer and it helps avoid over-mixing.  Over-mixing this batter can lead to muffins that are too tough and dense, we want light and fluffy muffins!

How to get dome shaped muffins?

Firstly, preheat the oven at 220 degree celsius for 10 minutes. Once the batter is ready, bake them for 10 minutes at 220 degree celsius. Further reduce the temperature to 180 degrees and bake them for another 8 to 10 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. If it does not come clean, bake for few minutes more. For mini muffins, the bake time will be less. I’d expect 10 to 15 minutes. But be sure not to over bake muffins.

The high temperature in the preliminary stage of baking helps the muffin to rise to that dome shape and further reduction in temperature helps the muffins to cook inside perfectly.
