Banana Sour Cream Muffins

Early this morning we said goodbye to our dear guests visiting from a town nearly 32 driving hours away. It was so nice because even though it had been nearly ten years since we were together last, we just picked up where we left off. They came to witness the wedding of their son and so we were honored to have them in our home.

Because our friends planned to be out and about during their visit I wasn't required to prepare formal meals. But I wanted to have a few things on hand for them to grab-n-go. That's where this recipe comes in.

The morning before they departed I whipped these treats up and they were a big hit. I'm sure they will be at your home too.

Banana Sour Cream Muffins
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup sour cream
1 cup mashed bananas (about 3 medium)

Put flour, soda and salt in a large bowl. Stir. Make a well in the center.

In another bowl cream butter, sugar and one egg. Beat in second egg. Mix in sour cream and bananas. Pour into well and stir to mix. Ignore lumps. Fill greased baking cups 3/4 full. Bake in 400F oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Makes about 16 muffins.

P.S. Our friends didn't hesitate when I offered to send the remaining muffins with them on their long drive home. So now I need to make a new batch for us!

I've had a busy morning taking care of tax customers and cleaning up our spindles for our new indoor stairs so now I'm off to do a little relaxing in the pool. The sun is shining brightly today!
