Ms. Jessica Cassidy, who blogs over at Home Cooking with Jessy, with her blog post: My egg omelet for breakfast.

Like Ms. Jessica, I also am a firm believer in breakfasts, specially when it concerns kids. What you see before you is what she usually prepares for her kids (omelette, steamed rice, noodle soup, and fresh juice): it's energy packed! Her food blog is fairly new, so why not drop by her site some time and give her a warm welcome and don't forget to leave a comment, or two.

My post for this week: Banana Muffin.
Nothing spectacular about it, except that so far it was the best that I've made! Ermmmm, this was my fourth try (using different recipes; I even tried one of those premixes..which was a disappointment.) lol.

I followed the recipe this time (i usually do that for baked goodies), except that I halved the portions and I skipped the frosting (I ran out of cream cheese! ugh). Next time, I will try it with the frosting. I will. Plus, instead of making it into a cake, I made muffins! Much easier to serve, specially with kids around...

This is the original recipe from MomsWhoThink:

Banana Cake


1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
2 cups flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon baking soda (add to pureed bananas)
3 pureed bananas, very ripe

Cream Cheese Frosting:

1/2 stick butter, softened
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 box powdered sugar (1 lb.)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9x13" baking pan or two 9" layer cake pans.

2. Cream butter, sugar and eggs. Sift flour several times, then add the salt and baking powder to the flour.

3. To the creamed butter mixture, add the milk and flour (alternating, beginning and ending with flour).

4. Add vanilla and mashed bananas (with the baking soda added to the bananas) to this mixture.

5. Bake layer cakes (9") for 25-30 minutes, oblong (9x13") for 35-40 minutes.

Frosting Directions:

1. Mix cream cheese and butter until smooth, add sugar and vanilla and blend well. Spread on cooled cake.

I was surprised with the result. Pleasantly surprised. Told myself I'll try it next time with the frosting. :D

This is one of the reasons why I hope to own an oven, but I guess I can consider it a blessing na wala kaming oven, baka lalo akong mahirapang mag lose ng weight. :)

Is this somewhat similar to banana bread?

My mom has her own version of the banana cake too :)
