I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Banana Bran and Blueberry Muffins

Banana Bran and Blueberry muffins. Try saying THAT three times fast!

For a wholewheat muffin these are surprisingly cake-like.
To make them you'll need:

1/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup milk
1 egg
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1  1/2 cups wholewheat flour
1/2 cup bran
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
1 tsp baking soda

Streusel topping:

3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
4 tbsps butter, melted
1 tbsp finely chopped walnuts


Beat butter, brown sugar, vanilla and milk together, then add egg. When smooth add bananas and walnuts.

In a separate bowl mix all the dry ingredients together up to and including the salt, then add to the wet ingredients. Don't overmix.

Stir baking soda with blueberries to coat and fold into the batter.

Pour batter into prepared tins. I made 8 mini loaves but you could make 12 medium muffins.

Mix the streusel together and top the muffins with it. Press down gently.

Bake at 400 F for 25 - 30 minutes


Cool in the pan before carefully lifting out to cool completely on a rack.


Aren't they the cutest?
