  2. Kate thinks your pictures look straight out of a magazine. She's going to make Gavin these muffins when the bananas rippen a bit more.

  6. Yeah, but how did the bananas feel about being mashed? They look awesome. I need to start baking, I think.

  7. What a beautiful picture. I really admire your photography skills!
    I made a batch of these yesterday (almost exactly the same recipe!). I happened to also have some left over strawberries that were getting soft, so I added them to the mix and they were really good!

  9. Dear Ms Janet, I love banana muffins. How did you know! How beautifully you have presented them too. Thank you. By the way, what are energy egg replacers?

    ReplyDelete
  10. linda - ener g egg replacer is basically potato starch and you mix it w/water to help bind ingredients and help them rise. but the rising leaves a little to be desired. the result tastes good but is a little flatter than normal baking w/eggs. did you catch slim's comment on my last post about you?

  12. Dear Janet, First, I love the 'New Look' of your weblog. pared down to the essentials....so very stylish.

    Secondly, I do not really care for bananas and cannot cook, but your muffins look delicious.

    Thirdly, I do like the styling of your china cup and saucer with your most appetizing looking muffin, the chintzy cushion and tartan throw. A very 'English' scene!!

  15. Janet,

    A couple of things....

    1) I'm making those muffins tonight, they look amazing!

    2) I'm loving the little touches of plaid that have been showing up in your posts lately.

    3) Have I mentioned I like the new look of your blog? It made me change mine.

    4) I think we need to plan another blogger flea market trip - even if Eddie can't make it. : )

    Happy Wednesday!

  21. Yummy. I love all things with bananas in it, but can't stand to eat bananas. You probably don't need to know this, but speaking of bananas...

  27. You must live not too far from me. We have camped off of 38 and taken the hike to the Aspen grove many times. Isn't it wonderful to have that little bit of heaven so close. I am in the San Gabriel Valley.

  28. Simple, luxurious pleasure. That's all I can say!

  29. sarah - it would warm my heart if mr se liked them.

    sunny - we are in redlands so the aspen groves are about a 40 minute drive for us.

    bodeci - thank you, that's all i can say.

  30. I like to freeze my bananas when they are perfectly ripe. Then I can drop one in a smoothie, or mash one & make these great sounding muffins! (I peel them first & wrap individually in plastic wrap then into a freezer bag.)

    Very nice new look to your blog.Simply beatiful!

  31. The banana muffins are in the oven right now with 3 minutes to go. They smell heavenly. Thanks so much for sharing. Julie

  32. sandra - such a great idea wrapping them individually.

    julie - i hope you enjoy them. report back please.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well, I have to admit that I altered the recipe a bit. I do love butter, so I dipped the tops in melted butter, then in cinnamon and sugar. Sorry, to be so indulgent and forgo your healthier version, but they were magnifique! --Julie

  34. julie - i'm so happy you responded. so you dipped them in butter after they were done baking. that sounds so good. i could easily do that with earth balance, cinnamon and sugar. delightful. thanks!
