Banana fudge muffins recipe: the Bug’s favourite

Wot So Funee?Following my first attempt at hosting Listography for Kate Takes 5, with my Top 5 Yoghurts, the Bug has been pestering Mummy for a post of his own. I may have mentioned that Daddy likes to bake muffins on a Sunday, and has become something of an improvisation expert with his random flavours. Chilli chocolate muffins was not one of his better attempts 😯

The Bug rates the muffin quality each week and came up with his top 5 muffins:

"top 5 muffins recipe"Does that make sense? Can you tell what he’s written? Granted, his handwriting is a little primitive. He then took to the laptop, intent on writing his first blog post. Does this help?

1. bnerner fuj
2. apl and jinj
3. beetroot and choclt
4. strorbree and wight choclt
5. bloobree and wight choclt

Anyways, we decided there and then to make his top choice for tomorrow’s breakfast. So here you have it: the Bug’s favourite – bnerner fuj muffins!

They are jolly good, and would be amazing in a packed lunch, along with this healthy vegetable frittata.

  1. I love this! A Delia in the making! And awesomely tasty muffins! I have written down what I need and will be off to Sainsburys as soon as pos! Thanks GG and Bug!!

  2. No, I’m not buying that number 3 is beet root. It definitely says beer. Beer muffins, hmmmmm…. Bet they’d be popular.

  3. I couldn’t do this at home. I am too controlling and would be taking over. Lesson for me to learn I think.
    And I am disappointed not to see the finished muffins 🙁 Who ate them all before you could take a picture?

    • Hee hee! I have his list of birthday invites here, it’s hilariously cute, but I can’t post it here – I think it will be pasted into a scrapbook!
