Banana Crumb Muffins

Yes, I’m still alive!!!  My life has been very busy lately and I just haven’t been in the mood to blog but I’m coming back around.  🙂  I updated my other blog Musings of a Military Sister last night – check it out if you get a chance.  My brother left for Iraq this past weekend.  Maybe baking and cooking will keep my mind off of it?!  🙂 

I made these muffins awhile ago now, but they were so good that I think I’ve made them three times now!  My coworkers loved them and I think they are truly the best banana muffin/bread that I have ever eaten.  I love banana flavored stuff but sometimes you think things will be good but they are too dry or not flavorful enough or some other weird bad thing.  However, these are absolutely amazing!!!  I found them on allrecipes.com when I needed to use up some bananas that were definitely past prime for an addition to my morning cereal.  🙂

Ingredients (makes about 10-11 muffins)

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease 10 muffin cups, or line with muffin papers.
    2. In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat together bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter. Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
    3. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
    4. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.

    Mrs. Pig Rating:  These are absolutely my favorite muffin ever.  And my favorite banana dessert/food of any kind.  I will make these again and again.  And they are pretty enough to take to a party or something if you need a breakfast!
