Baking Again (Mini Muffins)

We were at it again. Baking, I mean. Mini banana muffins this time. I got the recipe from here, a site that caters to kids who are learning to bake, hence the simple instructions. However, if you're going to try it, I suggest adding more sugar and making it 2 bananas, instead of one. Also, I added a dash of cinnamon, just for the smell. I had to make self-rising flour as well since all I had was all-purpose (just add baking powder and salt). Marguerite loved the process. In any case, banana mashing posed very little risk of waste and mayhem. After that, it's all stirring and ladling into the pan. I had to use the ensaïmada molds since Chip used the other muffin pan for beading and was never again seen. It's really pretty simple. The browner ones are not burnt. In fact, some might prefer the crunchier top (still soft inside).

Those really look good! I used to bake banana bread back home in America, but we don't have an oven here in the Philippines. Have to go to my local Sari Sari Bakeshop to satisfy my sweet tooth.

I miss baking na naman. Hay. It's really good that you're exposing Marguerite to so many things. She's so lucky!

@Dave: I know there's a recipe for steam banana muffins somewhere online. Maybe you can do it with bread too. :)

@Lalab: You'll learn. Look at me. I was pretty hopeless back then. I couldn't even boil water without burning it, lol

@Vera: Thanks. I missed it too when I didn't have an oven. It's just so much fun. :)
