OK... Here's what I did...

Sour Cream Moist and Extra WAL-Nutty


2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon double-acting baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
3 large eggs
3 mashed ripe bananas (just a bit less than a packed cup and a half)
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt or Sour Cream
1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts

Cooking Instructions:
  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a stand mixer, add Bananas, Greek Yogurt and start the mixer.
  • Add sugars, salt, baking powder, baking soda, Vanilla and eggs
  • Add flour 1/2 cup at a time
  • Add Walnuts if you like (I do)
  • Last step, add butter in chunks.  DO NOT OVER MIX, chunks should be a little visible in the batter 
  • Pour into prepared mini muffin molds (non-stick cooking spray).  Fill about 3/4 of the way
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 185 degrees and edges just start to toast.
  • Serve Warm out of the oven or room temperature with fruit and ENJOY!

This recipe has been added to my growing list of "52 Church PotLuck Dishes"!

A list of something NEW worthy of being shown off at a neighborhood BYODish (Bring Your Own Dish) Party, a Family special occasion dinner, Any Big Holiday Gathering or of course that glorious day when you bring a dish to share with your Church family...

Ages ago, literally almost a half century ago I was listening to our pastor talking about a PotLuck Dinner. It happened to be scheduled around a church work day when we were expected to weed, polish and do general cleaning and maintenance around the church (you know, back in the day when there were no no-wax floors and church pews smelled of Old English furniture polish). I am of course paraphrasing, but as I recall the pastor said,

"A potluck, like a church requires work. At a potluck everyone is expected to contribute.. At a church no one should come empty handed and no one should leave unfed".
I will confess that in my youth I brought more store bought plastic spoons and forks than I ever brought covered dishes and crock pots of fresh made love and caring delights. But now that I have become a hobbyist cook, I occasionally am reminded of those days and people from my youth. I reminded and I do wish that I could drop a dish of some new creation on those old tables at my fondly remembered Liberty Baptist Church.  Tables covered with newspapers and loaded with God's bounty prepared with love and caring... Enjoy
