    1 3/4   c            ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR
    2 1/4   ts           BAKING POWDER
      1/2   ts           SALT
      2/3   c            GRANULATED SUGAR
      1/2   c            BUTTER
      1/4   ts           PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
      1/4   c            HONEY
    1       t            ORANGE ZEST
    2       lg           EGGS
    4       md           BANANAS, over-ripe (BLACK),
      1/3   c            BLACK WALNUTS, coarsely
   Preheat the oven to 350-degrees.
   Grease (or spray with PAM), 8 LARGE muffin cups. I put
   6 in one and 2 in the other; set aside.
   Sift together into a bowl the flour, baking powder (or
   baking soda--mine turned out great) and salt; set
   In another bowl, cream the butter, sugar, vanilla and
   honey and add the orange zest. Beat in the eggs and
   bananas. Gradually add the sifted ingredients to the
   banana mixture. Fold in the nuts. Divide the batter
   among the 8 muffin cups, they should be about 2/3 full.
   Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a cake tester (or
   toothpick) inserted in the center comes out clean. I
   checked mine at 25 minutes and noticed they were
   browning on top too much, but they were still runny in
   the middle. I covered the pans with aluminum foil and
   baked for 5 more minutes, they were done.
   Turn out onto wire racks to cool completely.
