The crumb topping is what makes these banana muffins stand apart from the ordinary.
1 ½ c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
3 bananas, mashed
¾ c. white sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 c. butter, melted
1/3 c. packed brown sugar
1/8 c. flour
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1 Tbsp. butter
1. Preheat oven to 375°. Lightly grease 10 muffin cups or line with muffin papers.
2. In a large bowl, mix together 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, flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes (22-25 for jumbo muffins), until a toothpick inserted into center of muffin comes out clean.
Yield: 10 muffins (6 jumbo muffins)
