Last Sunday I met some of my friends at a picnic.  One of my friends offered me muffins, they were very moist and delicous.  When I got home I definitely had to try to make the tasty muffins.  A quick search on the internet I found a good recipe at the



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees celsius.   In a small saucepan melt the butter on low heat, do not allow the butter to boil.  Remove butter from burner and let it cool.  In the meantime in a separate bowl slice the banana and mash them.  The ripper the banana the better the consistency of the mashed bananas.


Add room temperature butter to mashed bananaAdd white and brown sugar to banana mixtureAdd beaten egg to banana mixture



Add the room temperate melted butter , white sugar and brown sugar to the mashed banana.  Beat the banana mixture with a fork until all the ingredients are mended together.  Add the beaten egg and vanilla extract to the mixture.

Add strawberry chunks to flourDrench all the strawberries in the flourMix the strawberry mixture with the banana mixture

In a separate bowl sift the flour and add the cinnamon and salt.  Cut the strawberries into bite size pieces.  Drench the strawberries in the flour mixture until all strawberries are all covered.  This technique is used not to allow the strawberries to sink at the bottom of the muffins during baking.  Combine the strawberry mixture to the banana mixture, do not over beat, do not use an electric mixer.
