Banana Bread with Homegrown Bananas

Well I now have an oven way out here and of course I was the first to use it! My parents have many banana trees and by the time we were going to get the oven, the bananas were going to be ripe and I definitely had to make banana bread.

Mixing my ingredients and mashing bananas with music of course, I was in a country mood.

I wanted to make more than just bread, so mom found me this short muffin pan.

The kitchen smelled the way a kitchen should smell! It was making dad hungry while painting the walls.

Presented the muffins on a glass cake stand and found a plate that actually belongs to a candle set for the bread, which fit perfectly.

Original recipe
With these goodies, since in Nicaragua, I used organic bananas from parent’s land and pure vanilla extract that was very thick.

Halloween Muffins

For Halloween I made orange creamsicle muffins and a cake from a cake mix I had bought a while back and gave to my friend’s mom along with other foods that I was getting rid of since I was moving. She brought it to New York since she was traveling with me and she just left early this morning. I had given her a pink lemonade cake mix as well and had given me the choice of which one to bring, I chose the orange creamsicle since it was orange, more appropriate for Halloween and fall.

Vegan Adventures in NY (Part 1)

Well, I’m in New York for the month of June and will be baking only vegan things here since I’m staying with my vegan cousin and we have other family members living in the same building who are vegans as well. There was a community block party happening over the weekend for the community residents and it was a potluck. I made two batches of the vegan blueberry muffin recipe, but I turned one into bread by baking it in a 9×13 pan and kept the other as muffins with banana pieces.

Lots Of Banana Treats

I made all these the day I was leaving on my month long vacation, March 2nd, but didn’t have time to post. Again since I was going to be gone for a month, I couldn’t leave my ripe bananas and had to use them…all 10 of them! I made two banana nut breads and 12 muffins. I also had some leftover dulce de leche frosting I had to use up and frosted some of the muffins to make cupcakes.

Vegan Blueberry Muffins

I was going bike riding and doing a picnic with my friends on Wednesday in the early afternoon and everyone was bringing something. So I got up early and had plenty of time to make some muffins. I settled on blueberry muffins to use up the blueberries I had before they went bad. The recipe was very quick and easy since last time I made it I used diced up strawberries, no dicing this time.
