My mom baked a lot when I was a kid. Now I love baking. And it looks like the gene was passed on once again. The daughter of justcooknyc baked these for me the other day. She’s been on a banana muffin/bread kick lately. Now I know the answer to the question, “What’s better than having a baker in the house?” Two bakers, of course.
I’m not sure about where the recipe came from, but here’s the note she wrote. (I’m keeping her name confidential because, hey, I’m a dad.) I have a hunch she improvised a little with these muffins, rather than strictly follow the recipe… that’s my girl.
I'm Justin Schwartz, an Executive Cookbook Editor for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. My opinions are my own and have nothing to do with my employer. I'm an occasional food writer and wannabe photographer, and this blog is about what I'm up to these days. I'm the author of Veg Out Vegetarian Guide to New York City and The Marshmallow Fluff Cookbook. You can email me at justin at justinschwartz.com. I'm also on Instagram.
A lot of the books I write about are ones I've edited, so my opinions are very biased. And if I didn't work on the book, someone probably gave it to me for free. So keep that in mind before you take my word for it. Sometimes I just like to give a shout-out to my friends.
