Holidays have almost begun! Today is the first day when I don’t have to teach at the university. The university classes restart on 3 Jan. Well, I say ‘almost’ because I am still technically teaching until early next week, but only the few private students that I have and through video conference. Moreover, I still have close to 50 copies of final exams that I need to correct. Regardless, Christmas is in the air!
Since I have time on my hands, I have decided to do some baking. But, bake what? Opening the fridge, my eyes automatically drift to the two super ripe black bananas that have been hibernating in my fridge for at least 2 weeks. Why not some muffins for breakfast. To add some crunchiness to the muffins and to make use of homegrown goodies, I will sprinkle some of the homegrown walnuts that are lying in the pantry.
A quick search on the Internet shows me a simple recipe that suits my needs. Following are some photos taken during the baking process. End result: 12 fluffy, but not sweet muffins for the breakfasts of the next few days.
