Recipe of the Week..."Banana Split Muffins"

Hi! This week's recipe is a real kid pleaser...I hope you like it!

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 1/4 cup margarine, melted
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 to 2 Tablespoons milk
  • Cherry jam
  • Coconut (optional)
  • Pecan halves
  • Chocolate syrup (optional)
Mix dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the next 5 ingredients, adding a little milk if the batter seems too thick. Spoon batter into greased muffin cups, filling each cup about 1/3 full. Drop a teaspoon of cherry jam into the middle of each muffin, and then spoon remaining batter on top of jam. Sprinkle top with coconut, if desired, and add a pecan half to the top of each muffin. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes and cool slightly before removing from pan. Drizzle with chocolate syrup, if desired, before serving.

YIELD: 10 - 12 muffins

(NOTE: These freeze well and are great to pack in lunches!)
