Banana Muffins with Crumb Topping


Today was my first day back from vacation and I have to admit it was a pretty fantastic one. Not only did I get to sleep in my own bed, but I got to the spend the day with some of my most favorite people in the world-the best friends. We went to the beach, although the weather was rather grey and dreary, it was a day full of laughter, jokes, taking pictures, and of course throwing Devina into the water. I also ran around with a rope of seaweed. Somehow while we were at the beach it got very foggy and cold and being me I forgot a jacket, but we began driving it became sunny. Since we didn’t get too much water at the beach unlike Devina, Josephine, Olga, and I went swimming at Olga’s pool. Then on the drive home I saw Connie in the review mirror! With college coming up in September I do hope we have more days like these were I get to hang out with the girls and just laugh.

Anyways, I made these muffins for our trip today. I had some bananas in the house and decided to try the highest rated banana recipe on All Recipes my favorite site.

All done and cooling! These turned out humongous.

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

1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease 10 muffin cups, or line with muffin papers.
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.
2. 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.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.
