I'm not much of a baker, even though I love to cook, so baking from scratch has to be an easy recipe for me to even give it a shot. Cooking is an art, while baking is a science
These banana muffins are really easy to make if you have a few bananas that are starting to get too brown for eating.
The recipe is from allrecipes.com and I made these for the first time the other day to rave reviews.
Preheat the oven to 375 and ready your muffin pans (light grease or papers, whichever you usually use).
Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in one bowl and mix them together a little.
In another bowl, mash the bananas and add the plain sugar, egg and melted butter until it looks evenly mixed.
Combine the two bowls into one just until the flour is moist, then spoon it into the muffin pan.
Mix the brown sugar, 2 Tbs of flour and the 1/8 tsp of cinnamon with 1 Tbs of butter (I used a little more butter and brown sugar to make a little more topping) then sprinkle this mixture over the muffins.
Bake for 18 minutes and check them with a toothpick in the center.
These are great cut in half and then quickly grilled and served with some butter. If you top them with some cream cheese icing, they become banana cupcakes.
