Banana Crumb Muffins

I LOVE banana cake, banana bread and these banana muffins!! I got this recipe years ago from a Taste of Home magazine.




Banana Crumb Muffins
Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 3 large ripe bananas, mashed
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted

Topping:

  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 T. all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 t. ground cinnamon
  • 1 T. cold butter

Directions: In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. Combine bananas, sugar, egg and butter; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Combine the first three topping ingredients; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over muffins. Bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Makes about 1 dozen.

Peach Vanilla Syrup

I received an email with this recipe from Pam a year ago. We LOVE this syrup! My 10 year old won't eat pancakes with anything else. I made another batch today and will be making more tomorrow. Try this syrup with whole wheat blender pancakes...SO yummy!! FYI...Basha's has peaches on sale 2 pounds for $1 this week.




Peach Vanilla Syrup
Ingredients:

  • 5 cups peaches(pureed)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 T. lemon juice
  • 2 t. vanilla

Directions: Bring first 3 ingredients to a boil, and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add vanilla and stir well. Pour into hot, sterile jars and screw the hot lids and rings on tight.

**Edited to add: Process the syrup in a boiling hot water bath for ~15 minutes, to make sure that any bacteria is killed. Start timing when the water comes to a full boil. Set jars out and listen for the pop to ensure they have sealed:)

Here is a link that Sarah D left about the safety of NOT hot water bathing...http://www.foodinjars.com/2010/08/canning-101-why-you-shouldnt-can-like-your-grandmother-did/ Thanks Sarah!!
