Equipment

  • Muffin tin

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup salted butter melted
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large bananas ripened
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar can substitute with dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp butter melted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F and line a muffin tin with cupcake liners (or spray the cups generously with cooking spray). Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer), combine the butter, sugar and egg and beat until creamy.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix well. Gradually add to the butter mixture and beat on medium-low speed until just combined. Add the mashed bananas and mix until just combined.
  • Prepare the crumb topping: In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and melted butter. Using fork tines, mix until crumbly.
  • Divide the batter between the prepared muffins cups. The batter will be thick and the cups should be 3/4 of the way full. Cover with the crumb topping. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centers comes out clean. Serve warm!

Notes

Consider adding extra ingredients to the batter for a boost of flavor and texture! Try dried fruit such as raisins or cranberries, chocolate chips or chopped pecans. Be sure not to exceed a total of 1 cup of extras.
Serve warm with a pat of butter for the most delicious results.
Both light and dark brown sugars work great for the crumb topping.
