Well. Miss Bakerella's contribution is rather delicious: Mini Banana-Maple Pancake Muffins. Really, just uttering the title of the recipe ought to have you running to Williams-Sonoma to purchase the book...but in case it doesn't, here's the actual recipe.

Like little pancakes in muffin form, these are a snap to make and unbelievably easy to eat. How did you just eat ten? Huh?
