Eggs are priced at around 10 cents/egg right now in Bangladesh! Not a poor man’s food, for sure.

A Welcome Street Side Snack!


Danae, here is the recipe you requested!  Note it has quite a few variations from the recipe I sent on Facebook.  I just finished eating one and thought I would like it a little sweeter, but you know I like anything sweeter than most folks.  Alice just told me she wanted something fat free, sugar free and high fiber, and is still experimenting.

2 C.   Mashed Bananas                       1/2 C.   Whole Wheat Flour

1   1/2    C. Oatmeal                                                3 tsp. Baking Soda

1/2   tsp. Salt                                                                                 3   Eggs

1  C. Yogurt                                                                    1/2  C.    Honey

1   C.  Roasted Chopped Pecans                     1  1/2 tsp. Vanilla

                                                                              2 C.    Bran

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Combine dry ingredients.  In another bowl, mix the bananas

with the liquids and stir into the dry ingredients, just until moistened.   If the final mixture

doesn’t seem dry enough add some more flour. Spoon into greased muffin tins and bake

until light brown, about 20 minutes.

I was going to feature today’s blue moon, but decided to post the muffin recipe instead.  The moon doesn’t really look blue but was given this name because it was an extra full moon and needed a name.  It refers either to the second full moon in a month (This month on August 1 and 31), or the 4th one in a season (Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall).  The moon cycle is 29.5 days. With either method the next one will be in 2015.  This is why there is the saying, “It only happens once in a blue moon (Every 2-3 years)!”

Enjoy the Blue Moon and the Muffins!

It was special to go to Platinum Suites in Banani with my good friend for their breakfast buffet!  The buffet included omelets, beef bhuna, chicken sausage, pancakes, sauteed potatoes, alu bhuna, conjee soup and other items.
