Banana Crumb Muffins



I wanted to bake some banana muffins for breakfast.  While I have a very good banana muffin recipe, it uses lots of butter (using creaming method).  I wanted something lighter and preferably a recipe that uses the muffin method (for easy cleaning up).  Found this easy to prepare and yet amazingly delicious banana muffin recipe.  What is so good about this muffin?  I must say is the crispy golden cinnamon crumb streusel topping.  It works magic with the soft and fluffy banana muffin.  


Recipe adapted from Allrecipes:

Ingredients:
(makes 9 muffins)

(A)
  • 1.5 cups plain flour (around 150g)
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • (B)
  • 4 medium-sized bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup castor sugar (around 70g)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 50g butter, melted (or vegetable oil)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence


  • (C)
  • 1 banana, sliced


  • Crumb Toppings
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar (around 40g)
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp butter



Method:

1) Mix (A) together in a bowl. 
2) In another bowl, beat together (B).  
3) Pour (B) into (A) and stir to combine.  Spoon batter into muffin tray lined with muffin papers.  Put one slice of banana on each muffin.
4) In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Rub in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.  Sprinkle topping over muffins.
5) Bake in preheated oven of 180C for around 25 minutes.
