Joy Wilson, aka Joy the Baker, shares sweet and simple recipes from her new cookbook, Joy the Baker Over Easy: Sweet and Savory Recipes for Leisurely Days.

She makes over banana bread by turning it into doughnuts and makes muffins fit for the fanciest teatime topped with a crunchy almond crumble.

I love this recipe because it's a great way to use up languishing bananas and they're great for a party because you can make them ahead. They taste like banana bread but are shaped like doughnuts, which makes everything better.

A splash of almond extract totally transforms a basic muffin into a sophisticated, classy accompaniment for teatime.
