I’ve always wanted to be a member of a secret club. Last month I signed up to join a Secret Recipe Club. Here’s how it works:
-Every month, I’m assigned a random blog.
-I keep it a secret (hence the name) until the designated post time and date, given to me by the organizer of the “Secret Recipe Club”.
-I get to pick a recipe, any recipe from my assigned blog.
-I can make any adjustments to suit my needs (gluten free, fat free, kosher, additions, substitutions etc.)
-Someone else out there in bloggerland, does the same, using a recipe from A Bountiful Kitchen.
This month’s post comes from Heather at “Join us, Pull up a Chair”.
It’s like summer in a muffin.
Fresh Strawberry Banana Muffins
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup oil
- 2 eggs
- 2/3 cup mashed ripe bananas
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 2/3 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup finely chopped strawberries
Preheat an oven to 375 degrees. Line a muffin pan with paper baking cups. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, oil and eggs; blend well. Stir in bananas and vanilla.
Add flour, baking soda and salt to the sugar mixture, stir just until combined. Gently fold in strawberries.
Spoon batter evenly into muffin tins. Bake for 17-21 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Yields 12 muffins.
