Banana Nut Cup Cakes

The regular visitors to this site would might know by now, how much I am fond of muffins. Every now and then I try to make atleast half a dozen muffins and store in a box. Well, I called these as cup cakes because I followed the recipe for cake. I was very much pleased with the way they turned out, very moist and melting in the mouth. Simply Great.

The source for this recipe is Banana Butter Cake posted by Puspha of PuSiVa'S CuLiNarY StUdiO.

With some modifications to the original recipe I made these cup cakes with no frosting though. I wish I could but they were tasty without any more additions required.


1/2 cup Whole wheat flour
1/2 cup Oats flour ( Grinded some Oldfashioned Oats to make the flour )
6 tbsp Brown Sugar
1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
2/3 cup Mashed bananas + 1/4 cup mashed bananas ( to replace 1 egg )
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Vanilla essence
a fist full of walnuts

1. Preheat oven at 350 degrees F.

2. Mix all the dry ingredients together. Mix all wet ingredients together.

3. Lay liners in to muffin moulds. Pour the mixture into them and bake for 18 to 20 minutes.

The yummy moist spongy cup cakes are ready to be served.

Since there are many savory picnic items already sent to Anupama of Food-n-more for her Fun in the sun theme of Picnic Food event, I am sending these as dessert. I hope I made them little healthy to have them guiltless. Enjoy guys.

Banana nut muffins are looking good hima.these muffins are waiting to be tried in my "to do list" from very long time. Thinking of the banana smell from those muffins Iam just backing off everytime.This time i'll surely pull myself into it.

Hi madhavi, Thank you and if you do not like banana smell then you can try any other muffin. I have a category dedicated to eggless muffins, you can try any other variation.
