These muffins are one of the first things my husband, U.S. Army Lt. Colonel John Duda Jr., gets hungry for when he’s home from deployment. I make sure to have the overripe bananas ready. They’re a family tradition. —Kimberly Duda, Sanford, North Carolina
Meet the Cook: The sour cream makes these muffins so nice and light that you can serve them as a bread with a meal. But, here at our house, I've fixed them for everything from breakfast up to midnight snacks.
I grew up on a dairy farm and now live outside a small town with my husband and our children - 17, 12 and 9.

While I visited my sister in Florida, she baked a batch of these incredible muffins. They have a cake-like texture with sweet coconut and a mouthwatering lemon zing. I went home with the recipe.—Nancy Rader, Columbus, Ohio
My grandmother passed this recipe down to me, and I'm eager to share it with my children. The down-home muffins are tender on the inside and have a crispy topping of oats, brown sugar and cinnamon. I've even added raisins and cranberries to the batter for a different taste. —Hannah Barringer
Meet the Cook: Because these muffins are a bit heavier than many of the snack type, they are perfect for when you wake up hungry. They're quick and easy, too. I adapted them from a poppy seed quick bread I was served once at a neighbor's.
My husband and I are the parents of three sons - 16, 15, and 12.
