  • Reviews

  • “These muffins turned out great despite my short-cuts!I haven’t hand mixed any kind of dough for years.I softened the butter, cut a banana in four pieces and threw all the muffin ingredients together in my handy dandy kitchen machine. In thirty seconds I was ready to fill muffin cups.I didn’t make the strawberry butter, as I prefer a plain muffin without any topping.Thanks for the recipe.I plan on making another batch tomorrow.”
