How to prepare Cheesecake Banana Bread Muffins?
Start by putting all the ingredients for streusel topping in a medium dish. Then, using a pastry cutter, work the butter into the flour and sugar until the mixture forms coarse crumbs and leave it in the fridge. Next, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mash bananas in a separate dish, and then add melted butter, egg, brown sugar, milk and vanilla extract and beat, at medium speed until it is all well combined.
Then, add dry ingredients and beat some more, until it is smooth. Set it aside. Meanwhile, beat cream cheese, granulated sugar, egg yolk, vanilla and flour at medium speed until it gets creamy. After you’ve finished mixing the ingredients, place paper liners in a muffin tin and pour 1 tablespoons of batter into the bottom of each muffin cup.
Then, pour 1 tablespoon of cheesecake mixture over the top, cover with the remaining banana bread muffin batter and sprinkle with streusel topping. Bake the muffins at 350 F for about 30 minutes, or until the toothpick stuck in the center comes out dry. When the muffins are baked, you should take them out of the oven and leave them for a few minutes in a muffin tin to cool and then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
