One of the Best Parts of Waking Up
A "Yummy" Breakfast!

Banana Struesel Muffin, peaches, orange juice and a nice hot mug of orange spice Tea! Mmm! These muffins are made from another recipe from the Bed and Breakfast cookbook. They are wonderful!

Banana Streusel Muffins

2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 teaspoon each: baking soda, salt and cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 mashed bananas
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease muffin cups. In a large bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. In separate bowl, combine bananas, buttermilk, oil, egg. Stir into flour mixture until just moistened. Fill muffin cups about full. Sprinkle with a mixture of 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/4 cup chopped pecans. Bake at 375 for about 17 minutes. Makes 9 muffins.
**These muffins freeze really well so a lot of times I double the recipe.

Susan, these muffins sound wonderful and I just happen to have some nice ripe bananas. Maybe we will have them with tea tomorrow ~ yum!

Just stopping by to visit your blog! It's very nice and I am glad to hear that you've made it to "the other side" from being a mommy with young children to adult children, and you're smiling! I would like to continue staying home after my children are older. Guess there's hope for me! I'll be back. Blessings!

These look delicious! Unfortunately bananas are very expensive in Australia at the moment (due to cyclone)- approx $12.99 (AUD) per kilo so they are a luxury at the moment! I can hardly wait til they come down in price as I really miss eating them.

annonymous, I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit! Thank you so much for your kind words! I hope you love the muffins:)

Deb, Mmm, muffins with tea, it doesn't get much better than that!

Ashley, Yes, yes, yes there is hope and you will be smiling "on the other side," too! What fun you have ahead of you:) I promise! I am so glad you came by for a visit!

Karen, well, I almost fell off my chair when I read how expensive bananas were in Australia. I only paid 46 cents a pound for mine. Maybe you could try my pumpkin bread recipe instead~ LOL!
