Banana Blueberry Muffins


Sometimes we are in the mood for a muffin...one that isn't too sweet, one that says "cozy with a cup of tea"!  These muffins fit the bill....they are moist and perfect for enjoying with a cup of hot tea.

I saw the recipe on Monique's blog, La Table De Nana.  She always posts such lovely pictures and scrumptious recipes.  Reading her blog is a real treat.  If you have not visited her, do take a moment to do so, you won't be disappointed.

Monique's muffins were made with bananas and raspberries....they sounded oh so delicious!   I knew I was going to make them right away as I did have a couple of bananas in need of attention and while I didn't have raspberries, I had blueberries....

Banana Blueberry Muffins

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened 
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
3 ripe mashed bananas or 2 mashed and 3/4-1 cup blueberries
a pinch of salt
2 cups of flour
1/2 tsp baking soda

Cream butter and sugar until light; add pinch of salt; eggs one at a time and then the mashed bananas.
In batches add the flour that you have sifted with the baking soda.
Gently fold in the blueberries.
Bake at 350° F for about 30 minutes.

  4. Kate these sound so yummy! I'm not sure which I'd like more the blueberry or the raspberry, might need to do a batch of half and half - I almost always have both in the freezer!
    France? how exciting, now that's the way to celebrate a birthday!
