Let's play and bake and bug the cats.

The sun shone and the house smelled of blueberry/banana muffins.
Sometimes I need to play in my china cabinet. It's one of my favorite things to do.

"La la la la la"
I love my blue and white dishes.
There are so many blueberries and bananas in my favorite muffins that I think we can count them as a fruit.
"Won't you come for a cup of tea and a mean some fruit?"
There's Natalie from and Ronna from tea in the photo. Drop on over and meet them.

Am I bugging you with my singing, Annie?
I think not.
Here's the recipe...

Banana-Blueberry Whole Wheat Muffins. NOW HOW HEALTHY IS THAT?
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 ripe bananas 
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup frozen blueberries ( I have used fresh and that's fine, too)

Preheat oven 375
In a bowl, whisk together flours, wheat germ, baking soda and salt.

In a large bowl beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs. In another bowl, mash bananas with fork and stir in milk & vanilla.

Add dry ingr. and banana mixture alternately to the wet mixture.
When mixed, add your one cup of blueberries. Mix lightly.
Pop into muffin cups and bake at 375 degrees for 20 - 23 minutes. Do the tooth-pick test.
Enjoy your fruit. :-)

  1. Sounds delicious - but I'll take the blueberries with or without the rest. :-) They're So delicious! And I love those sweet kitties!

  2. Deb, those muffins look diinve, and the china! Oh, my! Love blue and white to pieces. Your babies are pretty special, too.

    Dropping by from Claudia's. Thank you for having us over.



  3. Our mom says those muffins sound delicious!

  4. The napkins with cats! Too wonderful! Blue and white china AND cats! Just when I think it can't get any better, it does!

  5. You make the best 'fruit' muffins ever! Love the blue and white china also. Happy day Deb!

  6. Blueberry banana muffins? One of life's pleasures... even if the cats don't think so!

  7. Love your blue and white dishes -- and that cute teapot is absolutely the best! And, of course, the cats -- they go without saying! Sweet kitties! Annie is so cute all curled up.

  8. What an adorable post! the beautiful blue and white china with that cutie teapot and those banana-blueberry muffins on that sweety napkins... You´re really a queen at baking! Thanks for sharing the recipe with us.... I regret living so far away!
    Give a little kiss to sweet Annie and charming Sierra from me ♥
    Have a nice day!

  9. Your muffins look scrumptious! I've started using coconut oil in my quick breads, the flavor is incredible! 1-2 TBS is just right for a loaf.

  10. I can almost smell the muffins...may just have to make some ...
    Beautiful china too xx

  11. I will try your recipe, thank you! But, excuse me, are you using cat napkins?? Paper or cloth? Adorable! Mary A

    1. Paper. They were a gift from one of my clients. :)

  12. Oh yes, your muffins are fruit with a bit of extra ingredients thrown in.

    We grow our own blueberries, so we always have them on hand and a new recipe to use the blueberries is welcome.The recipe looks delicious, and being a "healthy" recipe is a bonus. Thank-you for the recipe.

  13. I like the idea of considering a muffin to be fruit! Thanks so much for the recipe and for joining in this week!


  14. Your blueberry banana muffins look delicious. Love your blue dishes and the cute kitty napkins.

  15. Your blue and white cups look so very pretty Debbie! If it comes to baking and china we are kindred spirits :-) Wish I could grab a muffin from the screen to taste it!!

  16. This is such a nice post! :) Your photos and card arrived today, thanks so much. I will share with Ronna! :) I think G & I are going to be in your town a week Saturday (11th) as I need to go to the beekeeping supply place there. If you guys are around and want to get together for lunch or tea, that would be great. No problem if not, as Ronna and Richard and G and I want to come out for another visit too. And I can check if Ronna wants to come on the 11th if you do happen to be free! I can email you about this stuff...

    Have a great weekend. The muffins look delish.
