Love Muffins

Love Muffin Recipe
By: Me
For: My future cookbook

1/2 C Milk
1 egg, beaten
1/4 C Sour Cream
1/4 C Oil
1/2 C Sugar
1 1/2 C Self-rising flour (whole grain, or otherwise)
1 Banana, ripe (or other firm, ripe fruit such as pear or peach)
4 TBS. Jam or preserves (any flavor, I used strawberry)

Glaze (Optional):
3 TBS. Additional Jam or preserves (any flavor)
3 tsp. Powdered sugar (optional)
1/2 TBS. butter

Preheat oven to 400.

Grease muffin pan*.

Blend together milk, egg and oil. Slowly blend in sour cream. Mash in the banana to desired consistency. Blend in jam.

In a separate bowl, blend together sugar and self-rising flour. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix. The batter should be slightly lumpy. Do not over mix.

Pour into greased muffin pan, each muffin slot should be half full. Bake at 400 for 20-30 minutes, or until done.

*You can use a loaf pan in lieu of the muffin tins.

In a small microwave safe dish, combine jam for glaze with butter. Heat in microwave on high for approximately 35 seconds, or until butter is melted. Stir in powdered sugar. Brush over the top of freshly baked muffins or loaf.
