Who doesn't have a fond memory of a muffin? From the "Muffin Man" on Drury Lane to Elaine's "Top o' the Muffin" store on Seinfeld where she only sold the muffin tops. Whether a prelude to a breakfast entree or a quick snack in the car on the way to work, everyone loves a muffin.

This month we feature Quita's Banana Pecan Muffins. They are a weekly staple at the Foley House Inn. Maybe you have been here and awoken to that fresh baked aroma. It's hard to only eat the top.
Quita's Banana Pecan Muffins
Banana Muffin Savannah bed and breakfast

* 2 mashed ripe bananas
* ½ cup vegetable oil
* 2 large eggs
* 1 cup of sugar
* 1 cup of flour
* 1 cup chopped pecan
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* ½ teaspoon baking soda
* ¼ teaspoon salt
* ½ teaspoon cinnamon

Heat oven to 350. Grease 12 medium muffin cups.

Beat bananas, oil, eggs and sugar in large mixing bowl until well blended. In separate bowl mix all dry ingredients, stir until blended. Mix together all ingredients just until blended.

Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Bake about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Let muffins cool in the pan for about 5 minutes before serving.

Savannah's historic district has 24 squares. The squares vary in size and personality, from the formal fountain and monuments of the largest, Johnson, to the playgrounds of the smallest, Crawford. Elbert, Ellis, and Liberty Squares are classified as the "lost squares," destroyed due to development in the 1950s.

The Foley House Inn sits on quiet and peaceful Chippewa Square. Centrally located in the historic district, Chippewa Square is the home to the statue of James Oglethorpe, the founder of the state of Georgia and also where Tom Hanks ate his box of chocolates in "Forrest Gump".
