Rotten Bananas

Navin and I both love bananas; so whenever we are at a food store to buy fruits, bananas will definitely be on the checkout list. In fact we were at Half Moon Bay last weekend for a barbecue. On our way back we stopped at the local road side organic fruit shop. There were tons of fruits on the table and we picked bananas! Luckily we saw 'butki keli' (short sweet bananas very similar to what we get in Goa) there and we both knew we had to HAVE it. :) We already had few at home and did not want to bring home more so just picked a couple to eat in the car :). Kevin and friends in the car joked about it but we enjoyed our 'butki keli'.

So as you see we always have bananas at home. And many times they rot and we have to throw them out. Today I decided I will make banana muffins simply because I did not want to throw those rotten bananas away. Well, well, you should see how it turned out. Simply superb!!! I don't like to praise my creations but this one is something I would want my friends to try too. It was really easy and since I had all the ingredients at home, within an hour the cake was ready. Here is the recipe Shreya's Food World. I keep a list of my favorite recipes on this blog.

I did not have muffin cups so baked it like a normal cake. In the past one month this is the third time I am baking a cake. No wonder Navin and I are putting on the extra pounds with no exercise whatsoever. Anyways, that is a different issue and we don't want to mix it with our eating habits :P

Last time we had called Navin's mom who is in Goa, she was amazed asking why is Shreya baking so many cakes? haha We cannot wait to call this weekend and tell her it was yet another day of cakes here!
