Rose Red: Domestic Goddess 2 - Banana Muffins

So, here's the deal: I've resolved to make at least one new item (ie never before made by me from this recipe) from How to Be a Domestic Goddess, at least once a week. I haven't counted, but there's probably about 200 recipes in the book. Some I won't make, most I will. That's it.

January 5, 2007 - Banana Muffins p.218
These are easy-peasy to whip up muffins (they are in the "children" section of the book after all!). They have only a small amount of butter and no sugar - all the sweetness comes from honey and banana. About a cup of flour, baking powder etc and cinnamon and off you go.


They are not the most attractive looking mix before cooking. (Nigella promises the recipe makes 12, but I only ever get 8. Sometimes 7. Maybe my muffin pan is too big?)

They make a most delicious holiday/weekend breakfast addition. About 15 mins to make (possibly less if you have little helpers - or would that mean more??) and 25 minutes to bake (enough time to have a shower and the make the coffee!).

This lot scoffed in about 10 minutes flat!

Seriously, I think you are already a "Domestic Goddess!"

These muffins look delicious. I would not be brave enough to start a cooking project like this before leaving the house for work...but you sure make it look easy!

Have a great time in NY!
