Cast your vote for Banana Nut Bread or Muffins

Dry milk is created by removing the water content which creates a concentration of lactose (milk sugar), which gives a golden brown look to baked goods. It has a binding effect on flour protein, enhancing the structure of baked goods. This property also helps them retain moisture to stay fresher for longer periods of time.

I used this recipe to make 1 batch of 6 jumbo muffins and 6 regular sized muffins. The recipe can also create 1 loaf of banana nut bread.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min

  1. Preheat your over to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a loaf pan or put liners in a muffin tin.
  2. Mix flour, dry milk, baking powder and cinnamon in a medium sized bowl.
  3. Beat eggs and sugar with an electric mixer. While that is blending (if you have a stand mixer), mash bananas with a fork in a small bowl. Add bananas to the eggs and sugar. Add the oil.
  4. Gradually spoon in the flour mixture until a dough is formed. Stir in walnuts. Spoon batter into prepared pans. I used an ice cream scoop for the muffins. Bake a loaf for 60-65 minutes or muffins for 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean after insertion.
