(California) Strawberry Banana Muffins
Whoo Hoo! California Strawberries are in season! I went to two local Farmer's Market for the last two weekends and more and more vendors are pulling out their red gems of deliciousness.
(And no, I'm not working for the California produce lobby with my recent posts of California goodness...but I need to remind myself of reasons why I love living in a land where I can't afford any real estate.)
I made Strawberry Banana Muffins from Joy of Cooking's website.
Yummy California Strawberries!
This recipe calls for 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries and 1 cup mashed bananas.
I topped the 12 muffins with some sanding sugar for a nice crunch on top.

These were okay, but there weren't my favorite muffin. I think it boils down to the fact that I like my strawberries raw or macerated in sugar...not baked. However, I do want to try a strawberry cupcake in the future. My banana wasn't terribly ripe, so that might have been an issue too. Why don't you give them a try and let me know how you do? :) Here's the recipe for Strawberry Banana Muffins from Joy of Baking!
