Here is a muffin recipe that we have made many times on the weekends. During the week, we are cereal kind of people for breakfast, but when the weekends come around, we like to have something special for breakfast. How about you? Do you have a favorite weekend breakfast? I would have to say muffins, pancakes and waffles are the favorite homemade breakfasts in our house. Jumbo muffins, like the ones you see in bakeries, are at the top of the muffin list. Make sure when you are making jumbo muffins to use a jumbo muffin pan, like this Baker’s Secret 6-Cup Texas Muffin Pan from Amazon.
This recipe for Blueberry Banana Jumbo muffins is an easy one to make and I am guessing you have most of the ingredients in your house already. This is a great one to make when you have a few bananas sitting there getting a bit more ripe than you would like. The riper the better when it comes to using bananas in baking! Another baking tip…when taking out your butter to soften to room temperature, take out the eggs and milk also. This way these ingredients will incorporate better with the dry ingredients.
My last few recipes on my blog have been blueberry related. The reason for that is we went blueberry picking and wanted to use some of the delicious berries up! Also, I love to use blueberries since they are so good for us. Did you try my Blueberry Pancake recipe yet? Give them a try…they might become a weekend favorite in your house also! :o)
