Muffins, those little bundles of joy that are so easy to make and taste so good with a cup of coffee in the morning.  This moist ,soft, tender muffin has a wonderful banana flavor!  The topping made of brown sugar, butter and pecans complements the banana flavor to a T! Let's talk about this recipe and muffins in general and how to make them melt in your mouth delicious. 

Banana Nut Muffins with Crumb Topping

As in this recipe and most muffin recipes,you start out by combining the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients in another bowl.  Then combining the two right before you bake them.  Combine the two bowls of ingredients by either stirring or folding them together until they are just incorporated.  "Mix until just incorporated"...those instructions come up a lot in scratch baking whether it be muffins or cakes.  The reason being ...the more you mix, the more gluten is created and the tougher the end result.   Muffin batters are normally lumpy, as you can see this one is. It's ok, they're suppose to be.  After you have mixed your ingredients until just incorporated, fill the paper liners 3/4 full of batter. 

Banana Nut Muffins with Crumb Topping

 These muffins have a delicious brown sugar,butter and pecan topping to place on top of the batter.  All that's left is to bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes and you have the Best Banana Muffins with Crumb Topping you have ever eaten! I hope you love them as much as we do!  Enjoy!

I think I may have to let a few of my bananas get overripe. Thanks for sharing this on The Weekend Social. These look amazing and I'm definitely giving this a try.

Bunny said...

Erlene I eat at least 2 bananas everyday. It was hard for me to let go of 3 of them to over ripe. But i was very happy I did! The muffins are terrific!
