  6. Keep scraping down the sides of the bowl often until light in color

  8. Beat first egg well before adding the next egg
  9. Add mashed ripe banana to the creamed mixture
  10. Add half the flour mixture to the creamed mixture, mixing slightly until just blended.

  12. Then add remaining flour mixture and beat until blended

  16. Place pan in oven and immediately reduce heat to 375° F

  18. Cool in pan for at least 5 minutes
  19. Move muffins to wire rack to cool completely.
  1. If you are using frozen blueberries, it is best to thaw them and allow them to come up to room temperature before putting them into the batter. I put frozen berries in the batter and it froze the whole bowl of batter! 🙁
