Banana Muffins

First, look how cute this is! It's my new rose pan :) Notice how nice and brown it is? Maybe my oven does work ok, maybe it's the super heavy bakeware I normally use. I started pondering.. maybe the heavy duty stuff conducts heat so well that the insides cook before it browns on top. Something to think about.

Ok so imagine this. Make a 2 size layer cake. One like twice the size of the other. Put the big layer down, then balance the little one in the middle. You could then circle the smaller layer with these roses and put 3 roses on top. You could then nuke icing and use it to "paint" the roses pink while you do the rest in white. I think that would be a cute little girl birthday cake :)

Anyway here is the recipe for banana muffins. It's a great way to use up bananas that go all spotty before you eat them.
Banana Muffins:
1.5 cups of self rising flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2-3 very ripe bananas
3/4 cup of sugar
1 large egg
1/3 cup of butter (I guess you can use margarine here too, I don't eat the stuff)

Squish the bananas, beat the egg & melt the butter. Mix this all together really well. Add all the dry ingredients together and slow mix into the wet stuff. Bake on 350 for 20-30 minutes depending on your oven. Add nuts if you have them. I think they are pretty good :)

Today was a good day. Took off from work to paint the deck then it rained so I

The muffins sound yummy! and so does the picture. I'll have to try the recipe. I've made banana nut bread once, but I've always made the muffins from a mix. I'm sure the family will love have some real ones.
Thanks for the comments on my menu. They probably sound a lot better than they taste. I'm not too great in the kitchen, at least not yet ;-)
