Next Thursday, May 27, I'll be hosting my monthly Sweet Thursday event, and this month the theme is Cupcakes/Muffins. If you'd like to have a muffin or cupcake recipe featured in my post, send me an email before next Wednesday, and I'll add you. You can also participate through Mcklinky on the day of the event.
The other day I was in the mood to to make some banana cupcakes. I've never made them before, but for some reason that's just want I wanted to make! I found a great recipe on Cooks.com, but I decided I wanted to do something a little more unique with it, so I searched around for a streusel recipe. I put the two together, and here is what I came up with.
Let me tell you, these were delicious! And if you like your muffins kind of sweet, this recipe will work for that as well. I've actually decided that I'm not going to look for anymore banana cupcake or banana muffin recipes. This is going to be my go-to recipe from now on!
I actually left a few of the cupcakes plain, and they were really good as well! The streusel just really spiced it up and added a lot of flavor. And they also smelled amazing! You should definitely give these a try!
Recipe For Banana Cupcakes with Streusel Topping:
2 mashed bananas
1/2 c. sugar
2 tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
pinch of salt
For Streusel Topping:
1/3 c. packed brown sugar
2 tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. butter (softened)
1/3 c. chopped pecans (I left these out)
Directions: Combine bananas, sugar, butter, egg and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl, mix well. Mix in flour, baking soda and pinch of salt. Pour into greased cupcake pan and bake at 325°F for 25 minutes. To make the streusel, mix brown sugar, flour and cinnamon together. Cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in chopped pecans.
