If You Give A Moose A Muffin Written By Laura Numeroff

Good morning, 

I am so excited Charlie is out of school at noon today for Christmas Break. His Birthday is tomorrow and he turns 10. Where does the time go? With Charlie being home next week I thought we might go down to his grandmothers next week so he could play with Payton. While we are there we are going to take If You Give A Moose A Muffin Written By Laura Numeroff to read to Payton

Once Charlie and I return home we are going to make Banana Nut Muffins for ourselves, as well as for Charlie’s grandmother for his grandfathers lunch. Then if we have time we are also going to make muffins for my sister as Banana Nut Muffins are her favorite as well and would make a nice treat for her.

Moose makes his debut in this picture book in the beloved #1 New York Times bestselling If You Give… series!
If a big hungry moose comes to visit, you might give him a muffin to make him feel at home. If you give him a muffin, he’ll want some jam to go with it. When he’s eaten all your muffins, he’ll want to go to the store to get some more muffin mix.
In this hilarious sequel to the beloved If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, the young host is again run ragged by a surprise guest. Young readers will delight in the comic complications that follow when a little boy entertains a gregarious moose.
This classic book is the perfect gift for


1/4 cup butter, softened1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup mashed ripe banana
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
In a small bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in the egg, banana and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cinnamon; add to creamed mixture just until moistened. Fold in walnuts.
Coat muffin cups with cooking spray or use paper liners; fill two-thirds full with batter. Bake at 350° for 23-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: 6 muffins

This morning I have a question for you what is your favorite muffins and why? Charlie likes all muffins and so does his dad. Although, I only like Lemon and Banana Nut Muffins both with and without nuts. I can’t wait to make these with Charlie as it will be our first time to make muffins so I might need to look into a boxed muffin mix instead of making homemade muffins.

Thank you,

Glenda, Charlie and David Cates
