I am going bananans ! There were plenty of bananas available over the weekend at the house, so decided to put them to good use before they turn bad which is probably like in another day’s time only. Muffins should be the easiest stuffs to bake but I feel very tired baking these ! During the class, this recipe yields a good 16 standard size muffins but my batter actually made 24 standard size muffins with 12 mini size muffins ! So I actually had to divide the batter into 3 times to be baked as my oven could only accomodate one 12-hole muffin tray at one go. I had to repeat the process of refilling the cups with the batter 3 times and waiting for one batch to finish baking before I can refill the next one ! Really tiring ~~ Fortunately the end result was good ! The muffins are moist which I like ! And I had the slices of banana decoration dipped with some lemon juice so that the bananas does not turn black so fast.

Spending time in the kitchen has been one of my greatest therapeutic passion thus far even though I couldn't do it on a more often basis than I wish I could. I do not prized myself as a great cook or baker, after all I am a one-woman show in the kitchen and blogging scene. Nevertheless, I hope this little space of mine can aspire anyone like myself to appreciate and enjoy the best of oneself's efforts in every single home made dish.
