Banana Bread Muffin Cakes – Recipe

I have been making Banana Bread in the past, but this time I wanted to make it into muffin cakes, so they are not as large as muffins, and no icing on top as for cupcakes…:-)  They turned out wonderfully!

I used most of the ingredients I found online, but cut down on the sugar and added a little extract to slightly improve the flavor.  Perfect snack to go with your morning coffee, or with a glass of milk for the kiddies.

This recipe yields 18 cupcake size muffins.

Banana Bread Muffin Cakes – Recipe


  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 tsp. lemon juice

  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • pinch of salt


  1. Mix the lemon juice with the milk and set aside (or use 1/4 cup of buttermilk instead, if you have it)
  2. In a medium bowl beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl beat the egg yolks, butter, sugar and salt, until creamy and lemon color.
  4. Mix in the mashed bananas and the vanilla extract.
  5. In a large bowl mix the flour, baking powder and baking soda.
  6. Combine the flour mixture with the egg mixture until incorporated. Do not over mix.
  7. Gently fold in the egg whites into the batter.
  8. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  9. Line the cupcake pans with 13 cupcake liners.
  10. Fill each 3/4 full with the prepared batter.
  11. Bake for 18 minutes, or until the dry toothpick test. Cupcake tops will turn golden color and spring back when gently pressed on the top.
