  1. this sounds like a lovely recipe. love how you incorporated figs into it too! :D

    1. Hey Sean,

      I'm surprised at how excellent the batter turned out. It was my Mom's idea, actually. =)

  2. hey! i can smell muffin from my screen!!!!!! I betcha couldnt finish it, SHARE!!!!!!!!!!!;P

    1. Hey, Eunice!

      Sorry, all the muffins were gobbled up by me, Mama Carrie and a friend. =( I promise that if I bake this muffin again, I'll make more and share with you?

  3. Wah, r u baking for CNY too? Love having muffins with lots of fillings inside :)

    1. Hey, Shirley,

      It just so happened that there was a bunch of overripe bananas.... and throwing them away would be a waste.

      But I might just take the CNY holidays off and bake so many muffins that Mama Carrie will collapse in horror. *winks*

  4. i think i shall bake this tomorrow. we have quite a bit of ripe bananas at home! a refreshing change from the cny biscuits.

    hmmm why doesn't anyone make banana cookies though? I can never have enough of banana stuff!

    1. Since I have some overripe bananas, I've tried turning them into cookies but the result was disastrous. It tasted nowhere like cookies and resembled more like flattened cakes. =(

      Perhaps folks haven't thought of giving it a try?
