These tender muffins are pretty and flavorful and topped with a delightful streusel. They are wonderful served with fresh fruit.—Pam Ivbuls, Omaha, Nebraska

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min.
MAKES: 12 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups cake flour
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (2 to 3 medium)
  • 1-1/2 cups (12 ounces) sour cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine first seven ingredients. In another bowl, combine bananas, sour cream, eggs and butter. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  2. Fill greased or paper-lined jumbo muffin cups two-thirds full. For streusel, in a small bowl, combine flour, sugars and cinnamon. Cut in butter until crumbly; stir in pecans. Sprinkle over tops.
  3. Bake 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled muffins in resealable plastic freezer bags. To use, thaw at room temperature or, if desired, microwave each muffin on high for 20-30 seconds or until heated through.
    Yield: 1 dozen.

"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."

"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!"
