Okay everyone...Fall is in the air and I am in a baking mood. Here is a very easy recipe for some good homemade muffins for those cool Autumn mornings! Enjoy!
1 cup sugar or 3/4 cup of Splenda
1 stick butter
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts, etc.)
1/2 cup chocolate bits or chocolate chips
1 cup mashed bananas (2-3 very ripe bananas work best!)
Cream butter and sugar in mixer. Add eggs one at the time to the sugar/butter mixture. Add the lemon juice to mashed bananas and stir into creamed mixture.
Sift together dry ingredients. Add this with the nuts and chocolate chips to the mixture. Pour into well greased loaf pan or muffin tins which have been dusted with flour and bake at 325' for 1 hour or until done. About 30 mins. for muffins.
Optional: You can also sprinkle sugar on top of the muffins or loaf before baking.
A doubled recipe makes 12 extra large muffins or 24 small muffins
