Blueberry and Banana Muffins

This is a recipe that I have made since I was young.  It came out of a vintage Betty Crocker Cookbook.  It make 12 muffins.  The recipe is easy to make and only uses one banana and a cup of blueberries.  It is topped with a crumb topping and colored sugar sprinkles before baking.  The muffins make a nice Christmas breakfast that can be made ahead and warmed in the microwave.  You will have to hide them from the family because they are so good.

    You must have been in my Kitchen! I went to bed last night thinking I should look up some recipes using ripe bananas as I realized there were some on my counter. Plus I just bought some blueberries. Thanks! I will also check out your other banana recipes.

      I actually used dried blueberries that I soaked for the recipe. The muffins turned out good. I have been busy vacuum packing my dried fruits. I thought I would use some. The banana cranberry bread is really a good recipe.

      Thanks for your comment. .

    mmm. . . these muffins sound wonderful. There are some really good recipes in those vintage Betty Crocker cookbooks. For many years, the Betty Crocker cookbook that I received as a wedding shower gift was the main cookbook that I used.

      The early 1950’s Betty Crocker cookbook is still very popular. Face Book has a vintage cookbook group that I like to hang out in and every time someone finds a vintage Betty Crocker cookbook, it is posted and drooled over. I think I have about 6 different Betty Crocker cookbooks I collected over the years and I reach for them first when looking for a recipe. General Mills had a very good test kitchen and recipe writers.

      I hope you have a nice Christmas.
