Mmm Mmm Monday~

Banana Crumb Muffins~
1 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 bananas, mashed
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup butter
Optional: Walnuts

Crumb topping:
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Instead of using regular cupcake papers, I use Souffle muffin cups (the 3 1/4 oz cups) these hold up really nicely in the oven and you don't have to put them into a "cupcake" pan. They also make whatever you bake in them very moist, perfect for breads that normally get dried out while baking.
2. In a large bowl, mix together 1 & 1/2 cups flour, baking soda and baking powder. In another bowl, beat together bananas, sugar, egg and butter. Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Then add walnuts if you like..... I like! I like! Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups about half full.... I always add to much, I can't help it... then it dribbles down the sides making a mess! 3/4ths full makes them just crest the top of the muffin cups...so try not to exceed that amount!
3. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping over muffins. Make sure you mix the butter in very well... you don't want any large bits as this is what melts and makes a mess out of your muffins....
4. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.
These are REALLY good. I make them ALL the time-- everyone LOVES them!

Okay you've GOT to stop posting all those yummy recipes. I really need to go on a serious diet, and how can I if I'm constantly eating all the goodness you're posting. I know you're just trying to tempt me beyond that which I'm able to bear! lol
Make it a good day. :=) Brenda
