Muffin Monday: Stawberry Almond Banana Muffins

Running a little late in posting my Muffin “Monday” blog. I picked up some voice students and wanted to share the muffin lovin’ with some friends at the studio. Here goes…

  11. Bake for approximately 23-26 minutes, until muffins are golden brown and pass the toothpick test.
  12. Let cool for 10 minutes, then transfer muffins onto wire rack to cool completely.
ymmmm.

ymmmm.

I was worried that these would be too moist. (The batter was very moist.) But they turned out great. I think letting them finish on a rack (verses in the baking cups) helped, so definitely do that.

Kathy, one of my new testers, really loved these. I believe her reaction was “amazing.” I’ll take that. 🙂 Bill really liked them too. So I guess this recipe will go in the cook book.

 

Give them a try and let me know what you think.

Cheers,

Rita
