NATURAL CLEANING RECIPE. HOW TO DEEP CLEAN YOUR HOUSE. HOW TO CLEAN A STAINLESS SINK.
Ever since I was little banana bread has held a special place in my heart and my Nana would make it whenever she came to visit. So every time I make it and the smell fills the air, lingering for hours, I always think of those simple childhood times. Last year my fabulous friend, Jay, sent me a new banana bread recipe
that he and his mother have been using for years (Anne Lindsay's Banana Cake to be exact). Really fantastic banana bread and I now always suggest it to anyone looking for a good recipe
. But last week I was feeling experimental and decided to add some blueberries we had and brown sugar...so amazingly good. I've made a few other changes and thought I'd share the recipe
with all of you! These are some that I made today with blueberries, raspberries and figs. Enjoy!
Mrs. Kupe's Blueberry Banana Muffins
(adapted from Anne Lindsay's Banana Cake recipe)
3/4 Cup Irish Butter, softened, plus more for tins

Preheat oven to 350F. Butter two standard muffin tins and set aside.
In a large bowl cream together butter and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla and bananas.
Mix together flour, baking powder and baking soda; beat into egg mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with the flour.
Pour batter into prepared muffin tins, about ? way full. Place a few blueberries on each muffin and sprinkle with additional brown sugar. Transfer muffin tins to oven and bake for 15 minutes, rotate pans, and continue to bake for another 15 minutes or until tester inserted in center comes out clean.
Let cool slightly before transferring muffins to a wire rack to cool completely.
*You don't have to use Irish butter, but I think it has the best flavor, I use it for all my baked goods, and it makes a big difference. I also feel that you should never skimp on vanilla extract! Always use real vanilla and use the best you can find.*
