Main course

Wednesday, May 04, 2011


I love to bake early in the morning. The smell of muffins baking just perfumes my whole kitchen that seems to last the whole day.

Muffins are a staple in our family. I usually bake some on my days off and freeze them, and just pop them in the microwave for a quick breakfast or snack.

When my daughter was a child she loves cupcakes and muffins because she can just eat them using her hand.

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2c oil
3/4c sugar (white or brown)
3 eggs
1/2 c milk
1/2 c water
1tbsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. allspice
4 bananas ( mashed)
2 ripe apricots
2tsp. Baking powder
1/4tsp. salt

Using  a mixer beat the whole eggs (do not separate egg yolks and whites) about two munutes. In egg mixture mix oil, BP, spices, salt and sugar. Incorporate water w/ milk and flour alternately to the egg mixture. Mix mashed bananas and one apricot (chopped in small pieces) to batter. Garnish w/remaining apricot. Bake in 350degrees oven 30-40minutes.
Perfect for coffee or tea.
