BANANA BREAD MUFFINS with MAPLE BACON COMPOUND BUTTER

BANANA BREAD MUFFINS with MAPLE BACON COMPOUND BUTTER

 

Keeping simple galley methods in mind I transformed my favourite banana bread recipe into individual muffins baked in my Omnia Stove Top Oven.  A dozen perfect little hand treats resulted.  What made them even better was the addition of Maple Bacon Butter smeared over their already rich moist warm surface.  Sadly they never last very long once Captain gets wind of their existence but they are so easy to make that once I have another ripe banana or two I can throw together another batch.
