Banana Crumb Muffins

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008


I always love to bake muffins.
You do not need to take out your mixer.
No need to grease the pan; At the end, less crap to wash.

I think muffins are great.
easy peasy recipe that always turns out great (unless you did something really stupid).

I love muffins.
They make my small apartment smells like “home”




After finishing my last deadline, I had to release the stress. That means baking! The recipe is taken from It is supposed to be their most popular and highly ranked recipe.

The muffins turned out to be really good. They’re really scrumptious! Definitely a keeper.





I am submitting this for the baking and photography contest for KBB (Klub Berani Baking) current challenge. After I popped these muffins in the oven, I remembered that I haven’t taken any picture of the process.

Argggh! –It is one of the criteria to enter the contest–. So, I’m gonna have to bake another batch of these goodies.

No complaint whatsoever =D (update: pictures are done!)
