How To Make The Muffins
For all you cottage Moms who are already seasoned bakers the directions will seem a bit obvious but we also want the guys to give it a go.
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl use an electric mixer to cream the butter, sugar, and vanilla together. Add the egg and mix it in. Then add the bananas and blend it all together. The riper the bananas the better. Green bananas result in dry muffins.
Next, add in the salt, flour, baking soda, and baking powder and blend well.
Finally, mix in the chocolate chips.
Using the ice cream scoop, pour your mixture into each of the paper cups in the muffin tray.
Place the tray in the oven and bake the muffins for 25 minutes.
When taking the muffins to the cabin, place them in a plastic bag you can seal or in a plastic container. This reduces waste and makes packing a lot easier.
This recipe works in either a conventional oven or a large toaster oven that you may have at the cabin if you decide to bake the muffins at the lake.
