Norma's Banana/Cranberry Muffins

Norma DeRemer


Pulled out and old recipe from my recipe box and dicided to omit the raisins and add cranberries instead. My family loves the old recipe and have made it often, but this tme I had extra cranberries in the frig. and thought I'd use them up. Turned out great. Tonight we cut them in half and added vanilla ice cream on top. Need I day more! MMM-good.
