Banana Crumb Muffins

Every Friday starting from last week a touch rugby session is held in uni. And surprise surprise! I actually went today!

So I decided to bake a little something for some of the lovely girls because, what’s a bit of exertion without food to cheer you on right? Well, at least for me it is. So I decided to make some energy food and of course everyone knows bananas give energy and a whole lot of other good stuff, and also, these are my favorite type of muffins. I have made them many times before and its best eaten straight out of the oven when its nice and warm!

Just like everything else I make, these are incredibly easy to do! I know nobody can be bothered to make these in the morning as really, we do not have enough time t0 get ready in the first place. But they still taste beautiful if you make the batter the night before, leave it in the fridge and when you get up in the morning just pour some in your muffin pan and stick it in the oven for a bit and you have yummy breakfast! No need for those silly cafe made muffins which cost a bomb and which aren’t fresh anyway.

So these are the things you need:


1 1/2 cups plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup white sugar

1/3 cup brown sugar

4 bananas, mashed

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/3 cup butter, melted

Now, all you have to do is to combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. An important tip is to never over mix the batter as it results in really hard muffins. You could use a wooden spoon ( I just use my hands) to mix it, a rough gauge is to mix it around 12 times.

You then line the muffin pan.

And now for the crumb topping which you sprinkle on top of the batter! This is really optional however, it makes all the difference!

These are the things you need:

2 tbsp flour

1tsp cinnamon ( or more)

1 tbsp butter (cut into small pieces)

You then mix them till it looks like the picture below and sprinkle it onto the batter.

Then you pop it into the oven at 190 degrees Celsius (you preheat it for about ten minutes before you pop the muffins in) and bake it for twenty minutes. Annnd you’re done! 😀

All of us, tired and hungry after playing touch rugby ate the muffins!

It was nearly dark when we left, so it’s more of a dinner muffin!

And yes, my mum requested for me to put up pictures of myself on my blog, so here it is( albeit a sweaty one)!
