That last batch of muffins went fast. They had some ripe bananas on sale (manager’s special!) the last quick trip Mrs J made to the store so she bought a bunch. Time for more muffins!
This time I had bananas aplenty. I made some additions to the same recipe I linked to last time-along the same lines as for my last batch. Then I made additions to my additions. I used more chocolate this time, four ounces of Baker’s sweet chocolate, about a cup of hazelnuts, and a good cup and a half of raisins and chopped dried apricots. I soaked the dried fruits for a half hour to hydrate them a bit.
I had enough batter to make 16 muffins. We only had 12 cupcake paper cups left so I just buttered four of the cups in that old muffin tin of Mrs J’s. They popped right out. It looks like the old tin made slightly bigger muffins than the newer one, but for some reason the four muffins in it baked quicker than the dozen in the other. I pulled those four from the oven after 20 minutes, and left the others for another three or four.
Bitsy helped out a lot.
