Nothing brings me as much pleasure as the sight of a home lit up from outside, heat swirling from the chimney as the furnace chugs along and then walking in, cheeks burning from the nip outside, to smell all the goodness emanating from the kitchen. Be it hearty stews, homemade soups or my very favourite..cinnamon and spice baking in the oven. If you are the same as me, then I believe you will enjoy this recipe for moist banana muffins with a cinnamon sugar topping. They are light and fluffy, super easy to whip up a batch and the smell that fills your home? Mmm, divine!
I try and always have bananas in our home, they are a daily staple in my diet but too often they go ripe on me and I am left mashing and freezing them. Don't get me wrong, we love banana loaf in our home but why not try something a little different this Fall? Trust me, you won't be disappointed!
Alright so lets get baking!! This recipe was given to me by my momma and we have been enjoying it for many years now. And now its your turn to heat up the oven and make some muffins for breakfast.
makes approx 18 muffins
3/4 Cup margarine, room temp
1 1/2 Cups brown sugar
1 1/2 Cups mashed banana's (I used 3)
1 Tsp baking soda
1 Tsp baking powder
2 Cups flour
1 Tsp vanilla
Cream your margarine and brown sugar together before slowly adding the remaining ingredients in your mixer. Divide batter evenly amongst your muffin tins, 3/4 full. I used paper linings but you can also spray your pans well.
1/4 Cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon then sprinkle it generously overtop the muffin batter
Now pop those muffins in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes and wait for the smells of cinnamon and sugar to waft thru your home!
I find I enjoy a more moist muffin top so the 2nd day is better, after it has had a night to sit, covered.
