It took me three tries to get Banana Blueberry Muffins (or Blueberry Banana Muffins, whichever you prefer) right.

The first time was just an absolutely miserable failure. Although I know it’s the nature of the game when it comes to the creation of baking recipes, it is still annoying, especially since I hate to do things multiple times and I don’t like to waste food or ingredients. They barely rose and were ungodly dense. They got thrown away.

It happens.

I made the second batch at 6 AM one morning when I couldn’t sleep (isn’t that what normal people regularly do?). They were better, but still fell as soon as they came out of the oven. I pulled out a few clumps of hair and tried again.

Luckily, third times a charm! They were moist, but still fluffy, with perfectly domed, golden tops. They made me happy.

For what it’s worth, I think baking them straight in the pan (no liner) makes a difference. They cooked a little faster and had more domed tops on them. Also, I was drowning in muffins by the end of this, so this recipe is for  6 jumbo muffins or 12 regular muffins.

If making regular size muffins, start checking the muffins around 20 minutes or so.
