Emily’s 2nd Birthday Gift (AKA The Recipe)


Emily, this is actually your third birthday gift because I bought number 2 today, but you haven’t received it yet and I don’t know exactly how to count anyway.

Banana Blueberry Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Preheat Oven: 350

Emily, do that first(!)


In Bowl #1 (the LARGER bowl):

1 cup Milk

any kind, including Lactose Free, works, although I’d stay away from Soy

1/4 cup Oil

your choice but probably Canola

2 eggs

Splash of Vanilla

1/4 cup Honey

1/4 cup Brown Sugar

1/4 cup White Sugar

1/4 cup Lemon juice

1 or 2 mashed up bananas

Scoop of yogurt or cottage cheese? Sometimes I do that


In Bowl #2 (the smaller bowl):

2 cups Flour

any amount of it can be whole wheat, yummy

2 tablespoons Poppyseeds

1 teaspoon Baking Soda

1 teaspoon Baking Powder

1 teaspoon Salt


Mix both bowls thoroughly. Then pour Bowl #2 (dry) into Bowl #1 (wet). Mix it up. No chunks.

Add blueberries like a fool. Usually I use about half a bag of the frozen variety. It just seems like the right amount. I also think the littler ones are better.

Grease yo pan.

Will probably make about 12 littles or 6 bigs, but it depends what you add exactly. Don’t be afraid to fill them up, these aren’t big risers.

Cook time: Between 15 and 22 minutes

Emily, set a timer.
