Banana Crumb Muffins

Banana Crumb Muffins 2

I wake up earlier than everyone else in mornings because I have to prepare big breakfast meals for the family. I roll out of bed, still groggy and utterly desperate for coffee. Then I decide to warm up yesterday’s banana muffins, poured the fresh batch of coffee and then I’m ready to go to work.

Nothing wakes me up than the site of delicious pick-me-ups like baked goods hot from the microwave. I made these banana muffins yesterday for a bake sale. I bought home some of the extras so I could enjoy my labor of love. Initially, I wanted to secretly stash them away for myself but then again my kids love baked sweets as much as I do.

I heat up the muffins so the kitchen would smell like them when the family comes in to eat. It’s not a bad way to start your mornings. They’re dessert energizers. I can tell you that.

Banana muffins are very light so they’re a perfect starter; a prelude to a full load of breakfast favorites. I start with coffee or tea with this muffin. And when I’m halfway full, I have some bacon and eggs. It’s not entirely bad to start an entire day this way.

Ingredients

  • 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

Description

  1. Start by preheating the oven to 375°F or about 190°C. And then lightly grease a 10-cup muffin tray or line them up with muffin paper.
  2. Take a large bowl and then mix together 1 ½ cups flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. In a separate bowl, beat bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter. Next, stir the banana mixture into the flour blends. Mix together into a batter. Spoon the batter into prepared muffin cups.
  3. In another bowl, mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Cut in 1 tablespoon of butter and then add this into the mixture until you see it turn into a coarse cornmeal. Next, sprinkle this topping over the muffins.
  4. Place the batter into the oven and bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the center of the muffin. If it comes out clean, they’re ready.

My Best Banana Bread

Banana Bread

Sometimes our kids can be the best sources of information. We were discussing quite a lot on the subject of bananas and how healthy they are. Apparently, my youngest learned it from school and so she naturally told me everything about it. She talked a lot from the ride going to school and then again on the bus home. She caused her sister quite the craving for banana and peanut butter sandwiches.

As I was making them, I suddenly realized that I bought home a bunch of bananas for a reason. My daughter had also subconsciously made me want to eat bananas and all things I can bake using it as the main ingredient. Probably it’s why I chose to bake banana muffins the other day too.

Today, I went ahead and made some banana bread. I was planning to serve this with vanilla ice cream on top but the family normally just enjoys it as is. Whatever the case, I was determined to put the banana discussion to rest by asking my daughter to stop talking about it and give her these as peace offering.

I think the smile on her face told me I was already forgiven the moment I took it out of the oven. It should work the same way for your family. Nothing puts an issue to rest than a hot plate of forgiveness served with a piece of bread.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas

Description

  1. Start by preheating the oven to 350°F or about 175°C and grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. Do it lightly.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Next, take the butter and brown sugar and mix them together on a separate bowl as well.
  3. Add the egg and mashed bananas and mix until well blended. Pour this into the flour mixture just to moisten. When they’re all evenly combined, pour this over into the loaf pan.
  4. Place the loaf pan into the oven and bake for 60 to 65 minutes. Or insert a toothpick into the center of the loaf and if it comes out clean, the bread is ready.
  5. Take it out of the oven and let it cool off for 10 minutes. Then turn this out into a wire rack. Cut them into pieces right before you serve.
