Not just another banana muffin

Vivian Queen-Chase


We always have a banana or two that gets too ripe. I place them in the freezer. The outside turns black but the inside is fine for Banana Bread of Muffins. They also seem to have a stronger flavor, which I like. This will make two loafs or 24 muffins. As you see, I made muffins and mini bundt cakes.
