These will satisfy your sweet tooth. If you’re eating them hot, try using a fork and dip them in maple syrup or sprinkle them with confectioners sugar. —Gina Berry, Chanhassen, Minnesota.

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 medium ripe banana, mashed
  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped dried apricots
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts


  1. In a small bowl, beat butter and sugars until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Add egg; mix well. Stir in banana and cream. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; add to creamed mixture just until moistened. Fold in apricots and walnuts.
  2. Coat muffin cups with cooking spray or use paper liners; fill three-fourths full with batter. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.
