Jumbo Caramel Banana Muffins!

When waiting around killing time to go to a High Kings concert, I went into a bookstore and found the Taste of Home Fall Baking magazine. Inside were so many wonderful recipes that I didn't know which to choose first. Since I had some bananas waiting for me to do something with, I made these muffins. These have to be the best banana muffins I have had. So moist. I didn't make the big ones but made smaller ones to cut back a bit on the calories of each one. So good!

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling

6 servings


  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1-1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3 large)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar


  • 1. In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Beat in bananas and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture just until moistened.
  • 2. Fill paper-lined jumbo muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 350° for 23-28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • 3. For icing, in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and milk; bring to a boil. Cool slightly. Beat in confectioners' sugar until smooth. Transfer to a small resealable plastic bag; cut a small hole in a corner of bag and drizzle over muffins. Yield: 6 muffins.
