Jumbo Banana-Pecan Muffins Recipe

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. YIELD: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 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. 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!"

"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?
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."
