Nutella Banana Muffins

I bought these fancy looking muffin liners a while back and have been trying to find an opportunity to use them. They remind me of the muffin liners used by gourmet bakeries.

When I was making my nutella banana bread last week, I had some leftover batter and thought I’d make a few muffins for an easy transportable breakfast. I wasn’t originally going to post this because my muffins did not come out pretty at all, but I thought I’d put it up anyway.

My batter was more runny than usual because I had an extra banana lying around that I threw in there. While this created a super moist cake bread, it created a not-so pretty muffin. My muffins came out looking like lumpy chef’s hats. The batter wasn’t firm enough to create the ideal muffins for these cupcake liners. Which is a shame because these cupcake liners were not cheap.

I have a few remaining so I’ll have to find a different recipe and try out these liners again.

  1. Lumpy chef’s hat – nice! Did they taste better or worse or not much difference other than the aesthetics with the extra banana?

  2. So – did they taste good or bad????

  3. The ingredients don’t match the instructions???
