Strawberry Banana Streusel Muffins

This basic muffin mix recipe comes from my 7th grade Teen Living class. (Home-ec, as some would call it.)  I usually make these with blueberries, but after having begun the process, I realized I had no blueberries. Whoops. "Well, I have some bananas about to go bad, and oh yea, like 4/5 strawberries too! Lets bake these babies up!"

Strawberry Banana Streusel Muffins
Yields: 1 dozen muffins


1 cup whole milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup diced bananas
1/2 cup sliced strawberries

Streusel Topping:
1/4 cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons cold butter, sliced
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare Streusel topping . Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl with a fork or pastry cutter, until crumbly.
Grease bottoms only of muffin pan. Beat milk, oil, vanilla and egg in large bowl. In medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add dry mixture into liquid mixture all at once. Batter will be lumpy. Stir just until flour is moistened.  Fold in berries and bananas. Divide evenly among muffins cups. Sprinkle each with about 2 teaspoons streusel topping. Bake 20-25 min or until golden brown. Serve immediately with a cold glass of milk.
