Start to Finish, These Moist Muffins Take Only 30 Minutes To Make!
I was at my sister’s house last week and noticed 3 very ripe bananas sitting on her kitchen counter. When she told me that they would probably end up in the trash can, I quickly jumped into action, searching for recipes online. However, I had a big challenge…my sister isn’t a baker so she doesn’t have some essentials like baking soda and baking powder. Actually, I don’t think she even had any flour! Needless to say, my options were slim but I did find this dessert that’s super easy and quick to make, using pancake mix! It’s from Allrecipes.com and takes only 30 minutes from start to finish. My sister raved about these because they’re extremely moist and delicious. It’s a perfect recipe for those ripe bananas or for those who don’t know what to do with extra pancake mix. Enjoy!
EASY BANANA PRALINE MUFFINS
1/3 cup chopped pecans
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon sour cream
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 small ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups packaged pancake mix
In a small bowl, combine pecans, brown sugar and sour cream; set aside. Combine egg, bananas, sugar and oil; mix well. Stir in pancake mix just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Drop 1 teaspoon of pecan mixture into center of each muffin. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until muffins test done.
Muffins are a good EASY dessert for novice bakers!
I have loved baking for years. It’s the excitement of finding a recipe that SOUNDS good, putting together some ingredients, following a few directions, then VOILA!…a sweet treat that you made yourself. Such a proud moment! Especially if it tastes good too! Well, it looks like homemade baking is growing in popularity due to the slow economy. According to an article on thestarpress.com, more and more people are baking their own treats to save money and it names some easy options. For example, it suggests baking your own muffins and quick breads, both of which are desserts easy and quick–you can make them in less than an hour! I also like how this article encourages you to experiment with ingredients and not be afraid of weird flavour combinations…like pumpkin and apple! Well, anything pumpkin is okay with me…I love it!
