Yes, in case you’re wondering – that’s what I’ve been doing all weekend.
I told you I was going to make croissants. Okay, so I still need some tips on shaping them, but they taste great – very flaky and buttery.
I was going crazy with cabin fever Saturday night. And the smell of these really old bananas was driving me crazy – they were way past their eating prime. So rather than toss them, why not make banana muffins? I used my banana bread recipe and baked them in a muffin pan, and they came out very well.
I’m bringing these to the office Christmas party (postponed a day because of Monday’s snow day). They’re chocolate cupcakes filled with a white chocolate ginger mousse, and topped with a dark chocolate glaze. I tried a new cupcake recipe from Martha Stewart’s Cupcake book for these (the jumbo marshmellow filled ones), but I wasn’t a huge fan – the cake tastes too sweet, and isn’t chocolately enough. Next time I’m sticking with the One-Bowl Chocolate Cupcakes, which is a far superior recipe.
