Banana Streusel Muffins


1 cup flour

1/2 c granulated sugar

3/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

4 TBSP (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted

1/2 cup plain yogurt)

1 lg egg, lightly beaten

1 lg banana, mashed

1 tsp vanilla

1 TBSP cold butter, cut into pieces

1 TBSP brown sugar

3/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1 TBSP flour


Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a loaf pan or muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together 1 cup flour, the sugar, baking powder, baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
Stir in the melted butter and plain yogurt. Add the egg and beat for 1 minute. Add the banana and vanilla. Stir until well combined. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared pan or into muffin tin (makes about 12 muffins).
Make topping by mashing together the tablespoon of cold butter with the tablespoon of flour, the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and a pinch of salt. Distribute the topping evening over the batter. Bake for 40-45 minutes for loaf or 20-25 minutes for muffins, or until toothpick comes out clean.
Cool for 10 minutes before removing from loaf pan or muffin tin.
Comments from the cook: A.Maz.Ing. These muffins represent one of my few cooking ventures since I've been so sick and pregnant. They are fantastic, and the streusel topping is to DIE FOR.
I doubled this recipe, and it made about 20 muffins. I've always been a fan of streusel, so I actually did a little more than the recipe called for. That can't hurt anything, right??
Best served with Mylanta...or your juice of choice! :)
