Strawberry Banana Muffins
I have to admit that I haven't bake muffins for a while, the last ones were Moist and Healthy Banana Muffins and Banana Chocolate Chip Bread. Here's another banana muffin involving fresh strawberries. Any other fresh fruits left in your fridge can also be used. This recipe can also be found on Joy of Baking.
Makes 12 muffins
Preparation Time: 15 mins
Baking Time: 25 mins
2-3 ripe bananas
1/2 cup margarine or butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup fresh strawberries, chopped
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly butter and flour 12 muffin cups.
2. In a large bowl, mash bananas. Whisk in eggs, margarine, sugar and vanilla extract.
3. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Gently fold in the strawberries. Incorporate gradually the dry ingredients into the liquid mixture.
