|Best Ever Banana Muffins and Mayan Black Onyx coffee...Elevenses never tasted sooooo good!|
1/2 cup butter, creamed with
1 scant cup brown sugar, then blend in
2 eggs and
3 very ripe mashed bananas.
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 scant teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1-2 tsp cinnamon, optional and
1-2 tsp vanilla, also optional
1 cup oats, quick for fluffs, regular for chewiness
1 cup flour
Butter a 12 cup muffin tin. I mean it. No papers for these, and no margarine. Butter. Spoon batter into tins, and bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes, more or less...when they are done, they are golden brown, and begin to pull away from the edges of the pan. When they are overdone, the smoke detector goes off. When they are done perfectly, they will have a lovely slightly crunchy outside for the first several hours after baking. After that, they lose their crunch, but the buttery banana flavor deepens.

If you bake them, I will come...Actually, if you want a free estimate on my painting services, I will come, but I won't turn down banana muffins, if you really want to entice me.
