Reviews for Jumbo Banana-Pecan Muffins
"My new favorite banana muffin recipe! Very moist. I made regular size muffins the second time because the jumbo size was more dessert than breakfast. Also used walnuts instead of pecans."
"moist and light, the streusel bakes into the top so it is easier to eat."
"Made for a Bake Sale to benefit MS Awareness Week and they sold very well.I suggested that they heat in microwave for 15 seconds. Thank You for the great recipe"
"These were absolutely delicious! I think the best muffins I ever made. The bananas are amazing in them. They taste amazing when they are warm. I would definitely recommend this recipe to everyone."
"They are amazing!!!!!!!! Loved them and super simple! Made 24 standard cupcake size"
"I just made these muffins and I made them in regular muffin tins and got 1 1/2 dozen and they smelled so good baking that I almost couldn't wait until they were done. The sour cream makes them the best!"
"Can we get the nutrition facts on this recipe so we'll know just how bad it is for us?"
"Well I am planning on making this recipe this weekend or Friday night for a quick Saturday morning breakfast with scrambled eggs and orange juice. It sounds very good and I believe it will be eaten by my whole household.......yummy!"
"Can these be frozen for later use?"
"Of course nothing will give you the banana taste, but applesauce would be a good substitute to keep them moist."
"[quote user="wakefieldj2"]what is cake flour? [/quote] Cake flour is a very fine, starchy flour - you can find it in the baking isle of your grocery store. You can substitute for a cup of cake flour by add two Tbsp of corn starch to a dry measuring cup and filling the rest with all purpose flour, then sifting. I highly recommend just picking up cake flour though if you can find it."
"Applesauce maybe. The apple flavor would go with the other flavors, but I'm not sure if they'd turn out or not. I'm guessing they would. Hope this helps. :)"
"In response to TheRealBoomer56, you could probably use a butternut squash puree or mashed sweet potatoes...these work well with cinnnamon and nuts."
"Pumpkin (either canned or fresh) works very well. I am also allergic to bananas and use pumpkin and apples a lot in recipes"
"I'm allergic to bananas, was wondering what you could substitute?"

"This looks really good I'm going to be making it this weekend"
