This banana bread recipe (first saw it on Ally's blog) has become a family favorite and is requested on a regular basis around here. Add walnuts and it is soooo good. I normally use one of those disposable aluminum loaf pans to make them. But I realized that this is something we're going to be making on a regular basis, so I treated myself to a regular loaf pan.
Now onto the good stuff. The super duper make you drool good stuff.
When I asked you guys to recommend blogs, you responded with a bunch of great blogs that I'd never heard of. One of them was How to Eat a Cupcake and Oh My Word, it is full of amazing cupcake recipes. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! There was a small puddle of drool on my keyboard after I'd browsed the site for awhile.
The cookie dough cupcakes and frosting sounded too good to be true and I had to try them. I started off with the easy part...making the mini cookies for the top of the cupcakes.
Then I filled the cupcake liners with batter and plopped frozen cookie dough balls on top. I use the aluminum cupcake liners because I don't own a cupcake pan and the aluminum ones normally hold their shape really well.
I filled the liners a little too much! I was lucky that only a few of them ran over, but the liners expanded, instead of keeping their shape, and they looked more like muffins than cupcakes. Time to get myself a cupcake pan.
Other than the odd shape, the cupcakes came out drool worthy. I was worried about making frosting from scratch, as I've only done it a handful of times, but I was worried for nothing. It should have been a bit stiffer, but the taste was out of this world. My MIL told me to quit my day job and bake full time, haha.
We're supposed to go grocery shopping this weekend. I need to figure out which is the next cupcake to try.
