Elvis Muffins

True story: I woke up last week with Elvis on my mind. Actually, Elvis’ eating habits, his fondness for Fried Peanut Butter and Banana sandwiches. Now, I have no interest in eating, let alone making, such a thing, but it got me thinking about banana muffins. Go figure.

So I started with a banana bread and added peanut butter. It was a colossal failure. It happens. Too many bananas, too little peanut butter, I really screwed up. But after discretely getting rid of the evidence, I went back over my notes, made a few corrections, and nailed it.

For a brief period, I thought about whipping up a marshmallow fluff frosting, but decided that was ridiculous. But hey, if you’re looking to end your days like The King, it might be worth considering.
