Friends, I’m feeling nostalgic in the kitchen today, thinking about my mom. It happens from time to time. Quite honestly, rarely does a day go by where I don’t think about mom. It’s probably the Sour Cream Caramel Banana Muffins Recipe that I was making that brought it all on …

Banana Muffin Recipe with Sour Cream

My mom taught me some of her recipes, but Betty Crocker also taught me :) But that was for baking and cooking. When it comes to hosting, I learned firsthand from mom, her personal triumphs, how to use the pressure cooker, how to preserve from the garden, put a roast in the oven on Sunday, and ultimately make a lot of dinner invites to share her cooking with others.

Tips and substitutions:

  • These muffins are made with Ghiradelli Chocolate Caramel Flavored Chips, but you can add whatever flavor is your favorite!
  • And the fun part of baking muffins is you can make them in seasonal muffin papers (pink for Valentine’s Day), and they are freezable!
  • I like to hold the muffin paper in my hand, and then add 1 large scoop. So much easier than trying to scoop it while in the muffin pan (it sticks and gets all messed up).
  • Don’t over bake!

If mom were here today, she’d want a black cup of coffee (Folgers would do), and would want a small sweet “nibble” to go with it. I’m not sure why, but when I think of banana bread, I think of mom.

Probably because it’s one of the first recipes she taught me how to bake.

I’ll end with this great quote that I just read … when I think of banana bread recipes or muffin recipes that have been passed down.

No one who cooks cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice of menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers. –Laurie Colwin

Enjoy!
