I am trying to find something to tempt the spousal unit's appetite -- he's not eaten enough to keep a bird alive since coming home from the hospital. I've got a turkey breast in the crockpot (three sprigs of fresh thyme, half a cup of dry white wine, 1 hour on high and 5 on low) and I just made a double batch of banana muffins. Bisquick is one of those convenience foods I don't feel in the least bit guilty about using.
Bisquick 'Nanna Muffins
2 1/2 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup sugar
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t cardamom
1/2 cup milk
2 T butter, melted
2 very ripe bananas, mashed and squirted with juice of half a lemon to keep them from browning
Beat the egg and melted butter into the milk and add to the dry ingredients. Stir vigorously for about 30 seconds (don't over-do it. You'll wind up with tough muffins).
Add the mashed banana and fold it into the batter just until blended. You can add half a cup of chopped walnuts at this point, if you are not married to someone who doesn't eat nuts.
Put paper cupcake liners into a muffin tin and fill each not quite to the brim with the batter. Bake for 18 minutes in a preheated 350° oven. Allow to cool for about 10 minutes before you try to take them out of the tin. Makes 12.
