Banana Bread Muffins and Blueberry Lemon Muffins

Two simple muffin recipes that are quick and easy for guests or hungry kids that must be fed.


3 soft ripe bananas, mushed up
1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups flour

Mix together.
Pour into 12 muffins cups.
Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.

These muffins are easy and delicious.  If you don't have lemon extract, use vanilla, and if you don't have half-and-half cream use milk.  I almost always put all the dry ingredients and wet ingredients into my mixer at once to make it easier, but add fruit last and just mix gently. They will still be delicious!

2 cups flour

1 cup sugar
1 TBS baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 cup half-and-half cream
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. lemon extract
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries or raspberries, whatever you'd prefer
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Combine the eggs, cream, oil and lemon extract: stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
Fold in berries, carefully!
Spoon into paper lined muffin cups.
Bake at 400 for 18-20 minutes.
Yields 18 muffins.
