I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Easy Butter Pecan Banana Carrot Muffins

A little like a cupcake but the oats makes it a little more muffinie (or muffiny? Is this even a word? You know what I mean)

Sometimes it's ok to cheat and start with a cake mix.
Instead of the usual 24 cupcakes the mix would make, this recipe makes 16 medium muffins.

1 - 432g butter pecan cake mix
3 ripe bananas
2 eggs
1/2 cup finely shredded carrot
1/2 cup oats




Mix bananas, carrot and eggs in mixer bowl, then add the oats and cake mix and beat until smooth.

Scoop into prepared muffin tins.


Bake at 350F for 18-20 minutes. A cake tester should come out clean.


Drizzle:
1 tbsp cream cheese
1/4 tsp vanilla
pinch nutmeg
1/4 cup icing sugar
1/4 tsp milk

Blend the cream cheese, vanilla and nutmeg together and add the icing sugar. Add the milk to the consistency you like.


Drizzle on top of almost cooled muffins.


I wonder what other cake mixes and combinations could be used to make muffins?
