Sometimes that takes awhile. I'm a busy girl. But today I realized that not only did I have bananas in the freezer, I had a carton of FRESH blueberries in the fridge! Oh, what to do...what to do...well, through the magic of search engines...(remember the days before search engines? No? Me, neither.)...I found this recipe for banana blueberry muffins. Sounded good, sounded simple, sounded like something I could throw together in the hour or so I had to kill. Go check it out. (Note: I did NOT use whole wheat flour. I don't care for it...it does NOT taste the same, so don't try to convince me! I will stand my ground on this one!) But I used everything else the recipe called for EXCEPT...!
I wanted a coffee cake, not muffins. So I baked it in a sprayed 8X8 and I mixed up a dish of my tried and true fave crumbly topping of flour, cinnamon, brown sugar and butter. I should admit now that while I was supposed to be mixing it until it got crumbly, I got distracted in my thoughts and mixed it too much. It wasn't crumbly. I had to sort-of spread it on top of the batter. Whoops. No matter. The result was stupendous. I might just over-mix again sometime soon.
P.S. Doesn't my boyfriend take good pics? He's so dreamy. You should go see the fant-ab-u-lous work that he does over at his website, www.pepperink.com
Be prepared to be wowed.
