#AceFoodNews – Oct.13: Tender, fluffy banana muffins studded with chopped pecans and topped with a crunchy crumbly streusel (since we’re all in agreement that the tops are the best part anyway, why not make them even better with a crumb topping!)……………If you’re looking for a new way to use up those over-ripe bananas taunting you on the counter, look no further than these banana pecan muffins! They’re tender and sweet and satisfyingly crunchy, like a cross between banana bread and coffee cake. In other words, the perfect way to start your day #AceFoodDesk reports
Ripe bananas are a constant battle around here, so I’m always throwing together a batch of banana bread so as not to let them go to waste: But rather than torture you with yet another banana bread recipe (I’ve got quite a few of them, actually, including my all time favorite double chocolate banana bread) I decided to do a banana muffin instead.
What a concept!
But I wasn’t satisfied with a muffin-ified version of my banana bread. No, my muffins would be stellar, studded with chopped pecans (you should be proud of me for using nuts here rather than my default chocolate chips… because breakfast.) and finished with a crunchy streusel topping.
Because, let’s be honest… a muffin without a crumb topping isn’t even worth making.
I originally tweaked my buttermilk crumb cupcake recipe to incorporate the ripe bananas, and while it was a good starting point, I found the batter a bit too delicate to support the weight of the crumb (leading to delicious, but embarrassingly sunken muffins). A bit more flour and a little less butter seemed to solve that problem, easily enough, and this recipe is the result!
Why are those cupcakes and these are muffins?
Let’s see. Well, the fruit here, for one thing, makes them most definitely muffins. Also see: lack of chocolate chips (not that I have anything against chocolate chips for breakfast, but it makes the definition in this case a lot easier). No frosting, no dusting of powdered sugar, no mound of fluffy buttercream.
