Banana Shrimp Cake

Banana and shrimp does not normally mix, does it? However, these Banana Shrimp Cakes are great finger food. They are crunchy on the outside and soft, sweet and savory on inside.

Banana Walnut Brownies Lollipop

I made a Banana Walnut Brownies for my kids’ after school snack today. This is a super moist, chocolatey and banana fragranted brownies. To make it a little bit more interesting, I cut out the brownies in small rounds and use two toothpicks to hold the brownies like a lollipop.

Do you think your kids will love this?

Banana Blueberry Muffin

This Banana-Blueberry Muffin is a recipe from Betty Crocker. Banana and blueberries blend well together with the sweetness from the banana and tartness from the blueberries.

I got this recipe from the web in my early days of learning how to cooking six years ago. Since then, it’s been a classic in my family every blueberry season.

Banana Bread Muffin

During the summer months, I try not to use the oven that much as it heats up the whole place. So, I normally bake my favourite Banana Bread in muffin tins. By doing that, I can reduce the baking time to about one third of the normal time require for baking in a loaf pan.

I have this Banana Bread recipe which bakes in a loaf pan for 70 minutes but I made it in muffin tins in for only 20 to 25 minutes. This way, it’s also cost effective as we can save on hydro bill.

Here is the Banana Bread which I made in the muffin tins.

The muffins turned out beautifully with nice colour.
