banana-y muffins


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.
