Tasty Tuesday

I am still trying to figure out the menu tabs, so please be patient.  I am going to add Menu Monday and post my menu for the week.  One of my goals is to be able to link the menu to a recipe.  The brain power that this requires of me might have to wait for the kids to go back to school in a couple of weeks.  But meanwhile, I bring you......

Banana Muffins


     1 cup whole wheat flour      2 eggs                                
      1 cup white flour      1 c. mashed, banana
       1 tsp baking soda      (about 2 cups)          
                                         1/2 tsp salt      1/3 cup buttermilk (see subsitution)
                  1/2 cup butter      1 cup of cinnamon chips
      1 cup granulated sugar      (or 1 cup chocolate chips)
(you can add 1/2 chopped nuts...if you are one of "those people") lol

I love having help in the kitchen.

Speedo is smiling because she had
 just liked her fingers when I told
her not to do that!

Preheat oven to 400*.  Mix together both flours, baking soda and salt.  Set aside.  Cream butter and gradually add sugar.  Mix well.  Add eggs and bananas; blend thoroughly.  (If you do not have buttermilk, you can substitute 1/3 cup milk and 1 tsp lemon juice or vinegar.  This will curdle the milk a bit.)  Slowly and alternately, mix in flour mixture and milk, beginning and ending with dry ingredients.  Stir in cinnamon chips (or chocolate chips)  then pour batter into muffin tin lined with cupcake papers.  Bake for 20-25 minutes.  Continue checking with a toothpick until toothpick comes out clean.

Speedo and I decided to do an experiment in flavor.  We mixed half the
batter with chocolate chips and the other half with cinnamon chips. 
The cinnamon chips won the taste test!!  The cinnamon muffins were
 gone the 1st day, and it took 3 days for the chocolate muffins to finish.

Do the taste test challenge and
let us know what you think!!
