Old-Fashioned Banana Muffins(Barefoot Contessa)

Pin It Now!

Another simple and yet delicious recipe from Barefoot Contessa I manage to find, old-fasioned banana cake. I baked in muffin cup for easy consume. The orange zest really gives some bonus to these banana muffins.

This is another bakes I brought to son's school together with the chocolate chips cookies.
