When your husband brings home 15 black bananas you might ask that next time he bring a dozen red roses. But if you are me, you get to work on 72 muffins, of 3 different types. I whipped (yes whipped) bananas into cream cheese brown sugar muffins, peanut butter and banana, and banana chocolate chip.

I hate when I'm actually baking the food and think if a great idea when its too late. Like a before and after of the black bananas into 72 muffins. I'll get better at the pictures while baking thing, I hope.

This is Mr.Josefsson's batch to take to work.

Cream cheese with brown sugar cinnamon banana muffins. (suggestions for a better name are welcome)

1 (8 oz.) cream cheese (softened)
1/2 c butter (softened)
1 1/4 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 c. Whipped bananas
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400.

Whip banana and cream cheese until smooth. Add eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla.

Add flour, baking soda and baking powder and beat until smooth. (easy!)

Pour into buttered and floured muffin tins and top with topping (repetitive). Bake for 10-15 minutes.

Makes 24

In non-food related news, one of my best friends was proposed to on Sunday. Ashley Farley will become Ashley Landis. I have the honor to be a bridesmaid. My first time and what an honor. I am so happy to be a part of her day. Two of my other friends are getting married in October and November. How happy I am that my wonderful friends are finding such happiness!
