At my house when I say I'm going to bake something, that usually means I'm about to experiment. I typically feel the inspiration to bake something new at THE worst possible time. For example, in the middle of a flipping heat wave, 10 minutes before I need to lay down to sleep before work, or my personal favorite--when I'm missing some, or most, of the ingredients.
Last week I was dying to make zucchini bread. I picked an enormous zucchini from the garden and some wild blueberries from around our house. I really wanted to use the recipes I found last summer to make some muffins and bread. Problem? It was hovering around 105 degrees outside and was already 83 in my kitchen. Yeah, not a good time. I waited....and today was cooler!! That meant baking was the plan as soon as I got home from work.
First up, Banana/Blueberry/Currant whole wheat muffins. Oh yeah baby! My husband is in love with these bad boys. Today's batch is the fourth I've done in 2 weeks, but it's the first batch with currants (picked from the bush in our backyard). I found the original recipe last year on AllRecipes.com and made some changes based on reviews and my personal tastes.
