  • 1/2 c. butter, softened
  • 1/2 c. firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 c. self rising flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add brown sugar, beating until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour, baking soda, banana, yogurt, ginger and vanilla. Beat at low speed until blended. Divide batter evenly among cups of prepared pans.
