Breakfast and Brunch

My Brown Butter Blueberry Banana Bread Muffins will brighten any morning!

Brown Butter Blueberry Banana Bread Muffins

I’ve always loved banana bread and blueberries combined in baked goods, but these muffins take them to a whole new level.  What is it with brown butter that makes everything so sinfully delicious?!  Yikes.  Beware, these are highly addictive….especially with the sweet drizzle.

You’ve been warned.  Enjoy!!

Simple line up of ingredients.  If you haven’t browned butter before, do not worry.  It’s very easy.  See my instructions in the recipe below.  I used fresh blueberries today, but frozen works too.   Easy on the stirring if you are using frozen, they stain your batter purple with too much mixing :)

Drizzle icing over warm muffins.  Note:  Icing is optional, they are great by themselves.

Brown Butter Blueberry Banana Bread MuffinsPrep time: 10 min | Cook time: 25 min | Total time: 35 min

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large bananas, about 1 cup mashed
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose Gold Medal Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Icing

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons heavy cream

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line 12 muffin cups with liners (foil is preferred)
  2. Place butter into a small skillet over medium heat. Cook, let bubble and swirl pan until butter has turned golden brown. You’ll see brown bits form at the bottom of the pan. Transfer to a heat proof bowl and let cool for 5 minutes.
  3. Pour butter into a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, bananas and vanilla mixing to combine. Add egg, stirring to combine. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt then stir in blueberries. Fill prepared muffin cups 3/4 full and bake for 23-25 minutes, until baked through. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes if drizzling with icing. Muffins are great without and GREAT with icing :)
  4. To prepare icing, place powdered sugar and heavy cream into a medium bowl. Whisk until desired icing consistency. Drizzle over warm muffins if desired.
