It's time again for
Secret Recipe Club (Secret Recipe Club) reveal! This month I got to choose a recipe from Kate's blog Food Babbles. What a great blog! She pulls together her love of food, family, photography and writing into one very enjoyable place to visit. I especially love the pictures of those adorable daughters of hers, but oh, the recipes! The hardest part of any Secret Recipe Club assignment is choosing a recipe.
banana muffins best, but he really likes these, too.
I used yogurt instead of the heavy cream in Kate's recipe - because that's what I had. I also used brown sugar because I think it adds a nice flavor to things, but cut it down a bit so the muffins wouldn't be too sweet - and they aren't. Of the 1-1/2 cups flour, I used 1/2 cup white whole wheat because I like whole wheat flour in my muffins, but I think a traditional whole wheat would be too heavy and dense.
Kate's recipe said to use muffin liners, but I usually like my muffins without them so I tried them both ways - with and without the liners. I like them better without because the bottom of the muffin gets browned, and I think it adds to the flavor of a muffin. They are good either way.
