    I made these muffins this morning, and my husband and I loved them! I thought they might be dry, but they were very moist and delicious. They were very quick and easy to make!

    Wow!, these are by far the best muffins I’ve ever made. I love the taste of banana, and the streusel topping is everyone’s favorite. I think I discovered this recipe about 2 weeks ago and I’ve just put my 4th batch in the oven. Thanks for the recipe, I look forward to trying others.

    Yummy! Fantastic recipe. Will be recommended it to many a friend.
    Easy to make and even easier to eat.
    The streusel topping is lovely but think I over did it a bit and made too much, as it crumbles all over my lap (oops!).
    Thinking of throwing some walnuts in next time too.

    And a little tip from my mum; use really ripe bananas (you know, the ones that have a completely brown skin,) for more flavour and easier mashing!

    I just made these and they are so delicious. They were so easy to make. I was kind of afraid it might not have enough to taste but it was surprisingly awesome. I am a beginner in cooking and it was so nice to have something so yummy and quick to cook. ^^ I’m loving your recipes.

    just made them..the topping is delicious but the middle is so so…should it be a little bit like wet inside? i baked them about 40minutes and still like wet

    Irina- Sounds too me like they were not cooked long enough. It doesn’t make sense that if you cooked them for double the time they would not be done. They should be baked at 375 degrees fahrenheit for 18-20 minutes.

    Awesome, quick and easy recipe. Very delicious, so yummy! Only suggestion, put a cookie tray under the cupcake tray as the strudel may drip (as was the case with my baking process) AND cause smoke. Otherwise, perfect!
