Ah, I love a basket of fresh homemade muffins. It reminds me of special mornings when I was younger like birthdays and holidays, when I would wake up to the smell of muffins baking. I knew that when I got downstairs there would be batch of hot, usually blueberry muffins wrapped under a colorful cloth in a basket on the kitchen table. Thanks, mom!
Last Sunday, a group of DC bakers and bloggers contributed to another bake sale to benefit DC State Fair. We set up at the Zorba’s Cafe patio and attracted folks on their way to the Dupont Farmer’s Market. Although all the desserts were fantastic (I loved the oatmeal cream pies and stupid cookies), with early morning bake sales, it is also a good idea to have some breakfast options as well. So I made these simple but flavorful peanut butter banana muffins. You already know how much I love the combination of peanut butter and banana, and I loved the idea of putting a banana slice on top of these (although it did brown a little the next day).
Of course, for the bake sale everything needs to be individually wrapped. Here are the muffins all ready to go…
