Today is Grandparent’s Day at the twins’ school.
They attend a special mass, take a tour of the school and gather for muffins and coffee or juice in the church hall.
I’m on multiple food committees, one being the one that did the food for the reception.
I thought it was time to try a new muffin. I am here to tell you, these are my
NEW FAVORITE MUFFIN.
If you love banana bread, and from the amount of hits my Very Best Banana Bread Recipe gets, many of you do, you are going to seriously dig these.
They are made with ripe bananas and topped with a crumble rich in spices of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.
I knew I was in love when the topping took up the whole muffin to where you could hardly see batter!
Hot out of the oven they have a perfectly round top, and that crumb layer is clinging on for dear life, but don’t resist the urge to steal a crumb off while it’s still warm! I did! If only you could smell them. They should make it an air freshener.
Bake yourself up a batch today, your family with love ya for it!
