Preheat oven to 350F

Bowl 1:

  • 2 sm. very ripe bananas
  • 3/4 c. lowfat plain yogurt
  • 2 lg. eggs

Bowl 2:

  • 1 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. cocoa powder, sifted
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  1. Combine both bowls until just mixed
  2. Fill 12 muffin cups
  3. Bake about 35 min

I found these rose fairly well and had a light texture, but they stuck to the muffin papers I used (probably because there wasn’t oil in the recipe). Next time I would try foils, or lightly greasing the muffin tins. I might also use a little bit of vanilla.

Tea Cake II

Last night the experiments continued. For one I melted 1c chocolate chips and folded the chocolate in to the batter, it was too much chocolate (unless I wanted a full-on chocolate cake, I was going for marbled). Once the cake was baked I drizzled the leftover chocolate liberally across the top.

For the second I added 6oz blueberries, folding them in to the batter. Unfortunately, as the cake baked many of the berries sunk to the bottom and some decided to stay there, so when I tried to turn the cake out of it’s pan pieces of the bottom stayed in the pan (not sure if I should have greased it more liberally, put a layer of batter in the bottom and then the berries, used less berries, etc). The bits left on the bottom were deeeeeeelicious though. I sampled the bottom of the blueberry cake, Huz taste-tested the chocolate one, and I brought the remaining cakes in to share with the faculty (as is my habit).

Hear that Ohians? Hire me and I will bring in home baked deliciousness.

a student just gave me the cutest gift ever! Next year, when I have a house, and a job that doesn’t have 14 hour days, I definitely want to try making these.
