Upside Down Sweet Muffin with Banana

Upside Down Sweet Muffin with Banana by car2ngrl

This recipe is designed for you to mess with it. In this case, I added a brown sugar pecan topping. However, if you flip it too soon, you'll find your topping still in the bottom of your muffin tin. :o( Sadness! So consider this an exercise in patience and make sure the muffins have completely cooled before you flip the pan and allow the muffins to gently fall out on their own. (No pan slappin'!)


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup mashed banana (about 2 bananas)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1-2/3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, cold
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 dozen


Preheat oven to 375

Grease a muffin tin, including the lip of the pan around each cup.

In each cup place a teaspoon of butter and a Tablespoon each of brown sugar and nuts.

Set aside as you make the batter.

Cream butter and sugar then add the remaining wet ingredients.

Add the dry ingredients and mix until just blended.

Spoon batter into muffin tins and then bake for about 20 minutes (or until a wooden pick comes out clean).

Cool in pan completely before flipping the pan upside down to release the muffins.

about 45 minutes
