...I shall now share with you the best recipe for banana muffins*:

½ cup margarine

2/3 cup milk

2 eggs

2 ½ cups flour

1 cup sugar

2 ½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

2 ripe bananas

½ cup chopped walnuts

½ cup choc chips (plus extra for eating)

Throw everything into your kitchen aid mixer. What’s that? Don’t have one? Well, go out and get one now. Go on, I’ll wait. . .

. . . Okay, now blend it up nice. It helps if you freeze the bananas first and then thaw them so they’re nice and mushy. Bake in muffin pans prepped with cooking spray, and bake at 425 F—what’s that? You’re Canadian or European? We’ll get your calculator then, I’m busy here. Where was I? Oh yeah, bake for 20 min. Eat warm before your family gets the best ones. You’re welcome.
