Today is Tyler's thesis defense. He's been working hard on it all summer, and we've been looking forward to this day. Of course I had to make something for his committee because that's really all I can do to help. I still can't fully even explain what his thesis is about, but I can bake.
I made my favorite banana bread recipe into muffins. I think this is the most fool proof way to make banana bread, because I always seem to get that doughy bit in the middle and the edges a bit too brown in my loaf pan.
I followed the recipe exactly, (well as close as I ever would) but I used whole wheat pastry flour and no peanuts. I am one of those people who think nuts in baked good is a terrible terrible thing. I sprinkled a generous amount of cinnamon sugar on top before baking so they have perfect crackly tops that shatter when you bite into them. Heaven.
::update:: I forgot to mention that I baked them for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
