Everyone knows how well the flavors of strawberries and bananas combine. This muffin is inspired by my favorite smoothie. It benefits from the amazing and well known flavor combination of these two fruits, but there is an added bonus. Make sure to note the heavenly aroma that will fill your kitchen as these bake, as well as the wondrous smell that will fill your nostrils as you take a bite of the hot muffin.


English Summer Pudding Cake

English Summer pudding cakes are classic molded desserts that alternate layers of cake or bread, fruit and custard. It is a classic British dessert that is somehow a cross between a cake and a pie. It is best to use fresh fruit and is great way to use the fruits of Summer when they are plentiful. Frozen fruits work great though and make the recipe even easier to make any time of year. This dessert is deceptively easy. It looks so gorgeous, but you don't even need a measuring cup to get this right. All you need is a nice mold, I used a flower pot and some patience, it has to set for at least 12 hours. Oh, you can wait. The best part of this recipe is you don't need a measuring cup.

Obviously, these are a perfect fall and winter muffin recipe, but truthfully, butternut squash is available all year round, so you can make these delicious muffins anytime you fancy them. They work beautifully with canned pumpkin puree too, so if you prefer pumpkin, or if you are looking for an easy way out- go for it! The taste of the squash is not very pronounced in this recipe, but it gives the muffins a beautiful color and an incredibly moist and light texture.
