The year has begun good and I am glad that I am taking my experiments to the next level….Yay !!! This is first time I have tried making muffins, though I wanted to make it for a very long time. This time after the vacations, I happened to get some good bananas from my hometown which is also purely organic. But as usual, the bananas all get to ripe together and started getting over ripped. I was thinking on what should be my next experiment and thought I would give a try with Muffins.
I was a bit nervous and choose the noon time to make it as my kids would be asleep and I could put my whole concentration into the Muffins. But as usual, as I was about to get them into the microwave, they got up. Oh…really had a tough time in keeping their hands away from the batter…lol…
This is a very simple recipe and since it is made in the microwave, it could made in a jiffy. Few ingredients and you get the Muffins ready in minutes. My kids were waiting to have them and I had to be a bit strict on them till I clicked the pictures. You can see how their patience was tested , as I got a chance to click my daughter trying to take away one…..lol….
Let us begin the year with sweetness and enjoy the year throughout…..
