Like my father, I love to spend time in the kitchen inventing new recipes. There are a few pleasures greater than sampling one of these warm muffins on a winter day. —Kimberly Kronenburg, New Lenox, Illinois

"Very good banana bread, not too sweet. The crumb topping is delicious!"

"Very good! I must not have it the butter in well enough because I had flour left on top of some. Tasty, but not pretty. I will melt the butter, I think. Didn't have any buttermilk, but added a teaspoon of vinegar to the cup of milk and let it sit a few minutes. Easy."
