I actually abandoned my "family" banana bread in favor of this one... It's more a like a cake than a bread. I have increased the bananas from the original recipe, and I prefer to omit the nuts. I like mine warm with butter on top. Yummy!
This is my adopted recipe Feb 2005
I didn't change the recipe ingredients because 11 members found it good the way it was. I did add 1 teaspoon vanilla as suggested by 1 reviewer. I used 1/2 cup canola oil instead of butter. 2 heaping cups frozen blueberries mixed with a little of the flour mixture to make sure they didn't stick together. I made 6 giant muffins. Very good muffins. I had to bake mine for 35 minutes, they were so big.
I found this vintage recipe on the Internet while looking for unique recipes to submit for the Zaar World Tour. It comes from the recipe files of Margaret Dens Buytaert, a Belgain who resided in Wisconsin. The idea of coffee as the liquid in this quick bread intrigues me. Sorry that I will not have a chance to prepare it for a while. If you try it, please share your reactions.
These delicious little orange-y, buttery, coconutty muffins are from the 1833 Umpleby House Inn in New Hope, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. They're so easy and quick to whip up! I adapted the recipe to make mini-muffins, since that's my preference, but the original directions for making standard-size muffins are included, also. Recipe makes 24 mini-muffins or 12 standard muffins (and has the distinction of being one of the rare baking recipes where the yield is accurate!)
This recipe came from a children's book that someone at the school that I worked at copied for all the staff. It came with a small story of how an Italian woman in the author's parish would make many of these loaves to give out to the children to celebrate St. Joseph's Day. The bread is very moist and delicious.
Perfect for lazy, weekend breakfasts. Sackville Girl made a sub and used raspberries and, well, you can see the great results in the picture! I must have really big muffin tins (or maybe they're bigger in Europe?) cause I get a dozen over-sized muffins with this recipe.
This recipe is from a Taste Of Home Magazine too. I will never buy a boxed corn muffin mix again. This was very simple, and they taste so much better! And they don't fall apart on me, like the boxed mix kind. Super Yummy!
