Dish:Vegetarian - Desserts
Servings: 12


3 medium bananas (about 10 ounces), sliced in half vertically
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons rum
1 1/2 cups (187.5 grams) + 1/4 cup (31 grams) all purpose flour, separated
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 + 1/8 teaspoon salt, divided
11 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened and divided
1/2 + 1/4 cup light brown sugar, separated
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2/3 cup walnuts or pecans, finely chopped


Preheat the oven to 375 and line a muffin pan with liners

To caramelize the banana, heat 3 tablespoons unsalted butter over medium heat. When hot, add the banana slices cut side down and cook until lightly browned. Flip and add in the brown sugar. Stir the sugar into the butter and spoon over the bananas. When the second side is browned, flip again to cover in the brown sugar sauce. Add in the rum and cook for 1 - 2 minutes. Most of the liquid should be gone. Transfer to a bowl and mash. Set aside to cool
In a large bowl, stir together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside

To make the topping, add the nuts, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup all purpose flour and 1/8 teaspoon salt to a small bowl. Add 3 tablespoons cubed butter and use your hands and/or a fork to combine, forming crumbs. Set aside

In a large bowl attached to a stand mixer, add 5 tablespoons butter and 1/2 cup light brown sugar. Beat on medium high speed until creamed - about 4 minutes

Scrape the bowl and add in the egg, vanilla extract and cooled bananas
Beat the ingredients until combined - about 1 - 2 minutes.

Remove the bowl from the mixer and manually stir in the flour, being sure not to over mix - a few streaks of flour is OK.

Add a heaping 3 tablespoons of batter to the muffin pans. Top with about a tablespoon of crumb topping.

Allow to cool for a few minutes in the pan then remove and cool on a cooling rack.


The rum will add a delicious subtle flavor to the muffins and won't over power the banana! If you don't want to add the rum, skip it and consider adding a touch of rum extract to the batter.
