wake up call

Muffins make my day. I love the faces of my kids when they wake up to the smell. I love to pinch them in half and spread soft butter on the inside. I love how wholesome and filling they are. I love to eat them as a snack. I'm picky when it comes to a muffin, I don't like them too sweet like the ones you buy at stores. I think those muffins taste more like cupcakes. I topped these muffins with a crumble made with oat cereal sugar and a bit of butter.


2 Cups AP Flour
¾ cups sugar
2 tsp. Baking powder
½ tsp. Salt
¼ tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. Lemon zest
¾ cup milk
1 stick of butter melted
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 egg beaten
2 cups mixed berries
1 cup very ripe bananas, chopped

combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in wet ingredients with a spoon until just combined. Lastly, fold in berries and bananas. Spoon into muffin pans lined with muffin cups. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 24 minutes.
