bachelorette brunch: part 3

In recipe on July 29, 2009 at 1:04 pm

to go with the bacon (clearly the star of the show), i decided to make strawberry-banana muffins. muffins can easily be made a day in advance and kept in an airtight container. since i knew i didn’t want to have too much to do on the morning-of, this seemed like a smart choice.

because of the scientific nature of baking, improvisation is almost out of the question, but i did adapt a very basic banana muffin recipe to include the strawberries. it’s such a traditional flavor combination, but how often do you see it in muffins?

ta da!


i thought the fruity pinkness was very bride-y, don’t you?

strawbana muffins
2 cups white flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 large overripe bananas, mashed
2 eggs
1 stick butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar, plus a spoonful
1/4 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chopped strawberries

preheat oven to 375 degrees. mix the chopped berries with a spoonful of sugar and set aside.

in a small bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

in a larger bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients, then add the strawberries (although be careful not to add any of the juice that they may produce) and combine. add the dry ingredients and mix well.


fill muffin cups (either with paper liners or without) 2/3 full.

bake about 15 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin (and not directly into a strawberry!) comes out barely dry. makes about 18.

there’s more. stay tuned…
