A Pinch of Salt Needed

Yogurt Banana Muffins

When I make a "healthier" version of muffins, using yogurt and vegetable oil instead of butter, I always add a pinch of salt even if the recipe does not call for it. Well, not always... because this time I didn't. I totally forgot about it.

It was a big mistake...

Baaa-chan, they look fine! Are they too bland?

Oh no, that is too bad, they look nice.

Yep, they were... at least, for me. You know this banana muffin recipe was ranked in the top 3 of a popular Japanese recipe site, which makes me wonder if my preference of taste is really off the wall...

BTW, "baachan" means grandma in Japanese, and I'm not quite there yet. ;)

Thank you for your encouraging comment... as always.

I always put in a pinch of salt, just because the recipe tells me to. I wonder what difference it makes?

Yes, I agree, a little salt enhances flavor in sweets not just savory foods.
Your muffins look very nice. They rose uniformly and are golden brown with good looking texture.
Keep that recipe!
