Ingredients

  • 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 sour cream
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • STREUSEL:
  • 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

Directions

  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 in 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.
