2/3 cup granulated (white) sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
2/3 cup mashed very ripe bananas (2 small)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Topping Ingredients

1/4 cup granulated (white) sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted


Preheat oven to 375°F (191°C). Prepare a muffin pan by placing 12 baking cups in the cavities or by coating the cavities with Pan Release shortening, or cooking spray, or baking spray with flour.

In medium bowl, beat 2/3 cup sugar, the oil and eggs with wire whisk. Stir in bananas and vanilla. Stir in remaining muffin ingredients just until moistened. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.

Bake for 17 to 21 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately remove from pan to wire cooling rack.

In small bowl, mix 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Dip muffin tops into melted butter, then into cinnamon-sugar. Serve warm.
