Banana Crumb Muffins

The one thing I love on weekends is the smell of breakfast in the oven. I always like to get up early and get something cooking while I enjoy my morning coffee. This past holiday weekend I was busy with plenty of other things and didn't want to devote a ton of time to breakfast. I mentally thumbed though my memory file cabinet on previous muffin recipes I had made in the past and that's when I remembered this one.

It got rave reviews the last time I made it (many moons before this blog was born) and this time was no different. In fact, if you really want to get an honest opinion on something, ask a child. Christmas day we had our close friend and their 2 1/2 year old son stop over. I gave him a muffin to try.... and then another and when he asked for a third I almost gave him one because I was so flattered. (I knew three muffins was no type of dinner so I didn't.)  Either way, that little boy and his review of my muffins made my day. If you're looking for a fabulous quick and easy breakfast... here it is!

Banana Crumb Muffins 
Yield: Twelve 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

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly greased 12 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 your mixer, with the paddle attachment, beat together bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter. Slowly stir the flour mixture into  banana mixture until moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups. 

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. 

Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.
