You know you are having a bad day when:
- You wake to find a kid standing at your bedside at 5AM
- Ovaltine milk is spilled on the wool area rug
- A lunch is forgotten
- Pants are filled in the local toy store
- Shirt is sacrificed due to "the incident"
- Someone (don't worry Laney, I won't tell them it was you) needs a second shower due to the pant filling incident
- It is only 10:30 AM
All fixable events, but certainly not the best way to start off the week.
You know, there is only only thing that can done when something like this happens - bake something, something good, and, as many of you know, streusel always brightens my day. Banana Crumb Muffins - I'll take two please. This recipe can be found at AllRecipes.com.
from: Lisa Kreft
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 bananas, mashed
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease 10 muffin cups, or line with muffin papers.
In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat together bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter. Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.
