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! Welcome!

Whole Orange Banana Walnut Muffins and Loaf

If you love oranges you'll love this banana loaf  : ) 

1 whole orange with peel
1 ripe banana
3/4 cup soft butter or marg
3 eggs
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp nutmeg
1  3/4 cups flour
2  1/2 tsps baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp chia seeds, optional
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Wash the orange and cut it into 6 or 8 pieces, remove seeds and purée in a food process.

Add the ripe banana and pulse together.
Pour into a large bowl and add the butter, eggs, honey and vanilla. 

Combine the dry ingredients up to and including the chia seeds and add to the wet ingredients.

When blended together fold in the walnuts. If you find the batter too thick add 1-2 tbsps milk. Depending on the size of both the orange and the banana you use you may need a bit more liquid. I should have measured the puréed orange and banana...oops! Anyways you can wing it, right?

Put papers in 6 muffin tins. Grease and flour a 9 X 5" loaf pan. You can cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom but not necessary. Pour the batter in.

Bake muffins at 350F for 20 minutes and 50-60 minutes for the loaf.

Cool 10 minutes before removing loaf from pan to cool completely on  rack.

Go make a cup of tea and enjoy!
