Banana Buttermilk Muffins Recipe

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! 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."

"These were delicious! The recipe makes 16 nice size muffins however I was a little short on the topping, so next time make just a little bit more. My oven baked them in about 14 minutes so keep checking a little early. I would have given this 5 stars if i didn't haven't to make these adjustments."
