Method
    1. Preheat the Oven:
      • Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease it lightly.
    2. Prepare the Banana Muffins:
      • In a large bowl, combine the mashed bananas, melted butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla extract. Mix well.
      • In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
      • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture, alternating with buttermilk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
      • Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups, filling each about two-thirds full.
    3. Bake the Muffins:
      • Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
      • Remove the muffins from the oven and let them cool in the muffin tin for 5 minutes. Then, transfer the muffins to a wire rack to cool completely.
    4. Prepare the Maple Glaze:
      • In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, maple syrup, and 1 tablespoon of milk until smooth. If the glaze is too thick, add more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until you reach your desired consistency.
    5. Glaze the Muffins:
      • Once the muffins are completely cooled, drizzle the maple glaze over the top of each muffin.
      • Let the glaze set for a few minutes before serving.
    6. Serve and Enjoy:
      • Enjoy your delicious Maple Glazed Banana Muffins with a cup of tea or coffee, savoring the delightful combination of banana sweetness and maple goodness.
    Pro Tips
    • Banana Perfection: Use overripe bananas for an intensified banana flavor and natural sweetness.
    • Even Distribution: Fill muffin cups evenly to ensure uniform baking and perfectly shaped muffins.
    • Glazing Technique: Drizzle the maple glaze with a gentle hand for an elegant finish; let it set before serving.
    • Storage Wisdom: Store leftover muffins in an airtight container to maintain freshness; they can also be frozen for future cravings.
    • Customize Your Glaze: Adjust the thickness of the glaze by controlling the amount of milk for your preferred consistency.
