Strawberry Banana Muffins-

3 T lightly melted butter
2/3 cup cane sugar
3 small ripe bananas
1 t vanilla
2 eggs
1/4 t salt
1/4 t baking soda
1 1/4 t baking powder
2 1/2 cups plain flour
1 cup chopped strawberries
(I used frozen, rinsed with cool water)
1/8 t cardamom (optional but this kicks these up a notch)

With mixer, beat bananas, sugar, butter, and vanilla until smooth and well blended.
Beat in eggs, then add salt, soda, baking powder, cardamom, and beat well. Toss strawberries in the flour and fold into the batter.

Bake at 375 for 18 to 20 minutes. This makes one dozen, nice and fluffy muffins.

*Tip: With the cardamom especially, these are a little above your average muffin and could be dressed up with a white or pink powdered sugar glaze.

I hope he does!
My children gobbled them up before my husband even got a good look at them ;-)
