Breakfast Baking Galore!

This week, we had a baking date for the breakfast themed cookalong. We made two things: the corn muffins that Carla suggested as well as Choco-Banana Loaf.

We made the loaf first because we wanted it for dessert that nice. Our neighbours told us that she loves it when we're cooking because the smells are so yummy, and this night was extra special. And, J said he loves the smell and baking banana bread the best.
We followed a recipe from The Everyday Vegan, it was a Maple Banana Bread, but we added the much-needed chocolate chips, walnuts, and cinnamon in. Heavenly - soft and moist, flavourful, and perfect when warm with some Earth Balance on it!Then, we made the corn muffins. Here, we added some dried cranberries for colour and a nice zap of something else. The finished muffins tasted even more delich than the dough i sampled, which wasn't too bad (but what a weird texture with uncooked cornmeal!). I liked adding the cranberries because they broke up the flavour, and they added some lovely colour. The muffins didn't rise too much and were dense, but we freezed some for another time when we're too sluggish to eat a good breakfast.
