Weekend baking #5 Spiced Banana nut muffins

Going bananas...yeap..got some left over riped bananas from last week..so for this weekend baking also decided to go bananas..i got this yummy Banana nut muffinrecipe by Tyler from Food Network.I added some nutmeg and cinnamon powder to spice it up...


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 overripe bananas
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
2 eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped
1/4 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Ground nutmeg


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and lightly butter 2 muffin tins.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon,nutmeg and salt; set aside. Mash 2 of the bananas with a fork in a small bowl so they still have a bit of texture. With an electric mixer fitted with a wire whisk, whip the remaining bananas and sugar together like you mean it, for a good 3 minutes. Add the melted butter, eggs, and vanilla and beat well, scraping down the sides of the bowl once or twice. Mix in the dry ingredients just until incorporated. Fold in the nuts and the mashed bananas with a rubber spatula. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins to fill them about halfway. Give them a rap on the counter to get any air bubbles out.
Bake until a toothpick stuck in the muffins comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before turning the muffins out. Serve warm or at room temperature.

I baked one batch of nuffins and baked another rectangular cake(with some almonds on top) with the same batter.
