This was sent to me today. I have never heard of it. I mean it has to be healthier than using those whitening products from the supermarkets.

Bananas

Bananas are the world’s most popular fruit after tomatoes. In western countries, they could account for 3% of a grocer’s total sales. Bananas consistently are the number one compliant of grocery shoppers. Most people complain when bananas are overripe or even freckled. The fact is that spotted bananas are sweeter

Labor Day in the USA

Celebrated annually as a public holiday on the first Monday in September, Labor Day signifies the end of summer for many in the USA. The first Labor Day, however, was held on a Tuesday in 1882. In “pursuit of happiness” through shorter hours and higher pay, printers were the first to go on a strike.

The origin of the dollar

A mining hole in the mountains of Bohemia produced so much silver it became the official source of coinage for the entire Holy Roman Empire. The mine was in a valley called Joachimsthal, and the coins came to have the same name: “Joachimstalers.” Over time this became shortened to “Talers” and over more time, the American pronunciation of the word became the name for the currency that you would like to have in your pocket.

The $ sign was designed in 1788 by Oliver Pollock, a New Orleans businessman, using a combination of Spanish money symbols.

Bank of America started as Bank of Italy

Amedeo Giannini, son of Italian immigrants to the US, started the Bank of Italy in a converted saloon in San Francisco at 9 am on Monday, October 17, 1904. On the first day, 28 deposits totalled $8,780.

When an earthquake struck in 1907, he ran his bank from a plank in the street – the word “bank” is from the Italian “banca”, meaning a bench or counter. Word quickly spread about his service and by 1916 he had several branches. By 1929, the bank was strong enough to withstand the Great Depression stock crash. Giannini changed the name to Bank of America in 1928 and remained chairman until 1963.

Banana Walnut Muffins

header image

These are my favourite Muffins. I often make them in Australia, as my son has bananas growing on his property so there is a lot of bananas. You can make these and freeze them and they make a great addition to your lunch and the children’s lunches. We put them in frozen and by lunch time they have thawed and ready to eat. Moist too.

THE BANANA AND WALNUT MUFFINS RECIPE

Wondering what to do with an overripe banana? Ponder no more. Instead, whip up a batch of these smashingly delicious muffins. It’s the smart-and tasty-thing to do.

Ingredients

Serves: Prep: 20min| Cook: 16min | Total: 38min

NOTE: Ingredients for a changed serving size are based on a calculation and are not reviewed by the author or tested. Please also consider scaling up or down cooking containers as needed.

TOPPING:

  • 2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cold butter, cut into small pieces

MUFFINS:

  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 1 large ripe banana, mashed (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1/2 cup milk

Directions

  1. To make the topping: In a small bowl, combine the flour, walnuts, and sugar. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. To make the muffins: Preheat the oven to 425°F. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and walnuts.
  4. In a food processor, combine the banana, oil, egg, sugar, and orange peel. Process for 30 seconds, or until well combined. Transfer the mixture to a 2-cup measure. Stir in enough of the milk to make 1 3/4 cups. Pour into the flour mixture, stirring until just combined. Do not over mix.
  5. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups, filling them about two-thirds full. Sprinkle the topping over the muffin batter. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool on a rack for 5 minutes. Remove to the rack to cool completely.
