Baking with Edel: Choco Banana Muffins

This is probably the easiest baking recipe I’ve found online. I said “easiest” because I was able to memorize the very few ingredients and simple baking instructions while making ‘em muffins. First time to happen to me so I was quite amazed. You, too, can bake this in your home kitchen!


Anyway, I had the time to bake because it was holiday for us Manila-based workers last Tuesday, it being Manila Day. I got the recipe from which is a very useful site for everything about cooking and baking as it has a massive collection of recipes from around the world. Here it is:

Banana Muffins


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 large bananas, mashed
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup butter, melted


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat muffin pans with non-stick spray, or use paper liners. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

2. Combine bananas, sugar, egg, and melted butter in a large bowl. Fold in flour mixture, and mix until smooth. Scoop into muffin pans.

3. Bake in preheated oven. Bake mini muffins for 10 to 15 minutes, and large muffins for 25 to 30 minutes. Muffins will spring back when lightly tapped.


I just added chocolate chips (about 1/4 cup) to make it choco banana. Haha. My choco banana muffins were a hit to the hubby and to both of our families. (We brought most of the muffins to Manila the next day.) I baked two batches which produced a total of 12 large muffins. While I like my muffin hot off the oven, the hubby prefers his to be cold. To each his own, I guess. But still, no matter how you eat it, it’s tasty, fluffy and moist with just the right amount of sweetness. It’s perfect for merienda paired with your fave drinks. :)

      Try and try until you succeed. Hehe. Not so sure if pwede sa oven toaster, Jen. Baka you have a turbo broiler? Kasi I used to bake using that, yung nilulutuan usually ng manok. Recently lang din ako nagkaroon ng small oven, yung electric/convection oven ba. :)

      Success yan sayo, Cielo, I’m telling you. One of the easiest baking recipe yan na nagawa ko! :)

      P.S. Ang madalas kong bawasan sa mga baking ingredients ay sugar, kasi ayoko ng super tamis.

    Looks yummy! Banana muffins are my dad’s favorite! I love it with choco chips too. But my dad’s not much into sweets kaya I use ground cashew instead of choco chips for him haha! :p
