How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Beat butter at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until creamy; add brown sugar, and beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Add sour cream and vanilla, and beat just until blended.

Step 2

Stir together flour and next 5 ingredients. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended. Stir in bananas and pecans just until blended. Spoon batter into 2 lightly greased (with cooking spray) 12-cup muffin pans, filling three-fourths full.

Step 3

Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove from pans, and cool completely on wire racks (about 30 minutes).

Step 4

Make a small hole in top of each muffin, using the handle of a small wooden spoon. Spoon Cream Cheese-Honey Filling into a zip-top plastic freezer bag. Snip 1 corner of bag to make a tiny hole. Pipe a generous amount of filling into each muffin.
