TWD- Brownie (Jumbo) Buttons

Mmm... brownies. As I've mentioned before, my husband claims to not be a brownie fan, so when I saw that these were chosen this week by Jayma, I wasn't too sure about making them. Then I saw that they take about 5 minutes, only make a few (even fewer if you make them in a regular muffin pan like I did- you'll get exactly 6), and got rave reviews on the P&Q so I went ahead and made them with my daughter. These are GREAT if you ever need a quick treat and as far as brownies go, they're my favorite kind- moist, chewy and dense (not cakey).
And you know my non-brownie-loving husband had one and liked it. :) Check out Jayma's blog for the recipe!

TWD- Classic Banana Bundt Cake

This week's TWD was chosen by one of my (and lots of other people's) favorite blog The Food Librarian for Classic Banana Bundt Cake. We love banana bread at our house so I was sure this would be a hit. Husband and Monkey #1 liked it, but Monkey #2, who doesn't really like cake/bready food (I'm not sure whose kid she is) wasn't crazy about it.
I'm not sure what I was expecting, but, while it's really good, it isn't really any different than banana bread. Very moist and not too sweet, this would be great as a breakfast or snacking cake. I didn't make the lemon glaze listed in the sidebar, but others recommended it!
Check out Mary's blog for this and other fantastic recipes!

And this is the newest Monkey in our house (a boy this time!):
