Theme of the week: Brownies and Muffins
We begin with week 4 and this week I shall be posting Muffins and Brownies. The first three days it's muffins.
For today I have chosen Banana walnut muffins. I do not eat bananas, so I hardly use them in my baking, they definitely lend a prominent flavor to the bakes. Of course it is a very good egg substitute. I made these muffins when my granddaughters came from Japan. They loved them and my daughter was happy that the little one year old was asking for more. She was happy to feed her with these as they would provide her with sufficient energy. Well even I had one of those, but with that chocolate sauce. What do you do to your love for chocolate?
