Banana Bread with Streusel Topping Recipe
This Banana Bread with Streusel Topping Recipe is quick and easy, like most quick breads. The streusel topping for this recipe only takes a minute or two more, and is well worth that extra time. This recipe is the favorite of our son and daughter, while Ed prefers our super moist banana bread recipe!
To Make Your Banana Bread Batter…
To make this version of our banana bread, start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and light butter or grease your 9 x 5 loaf pan. Combine your dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl including flour, baking soda, and salt.
In a small to medium bowl mash your overripe bananas and set aside. In another medium bowl, cream the softened butter and brown sugar together. Stir in the beaten eggs first then the mashed bananas, and stir to combine thoroughly. Add the banana mixture to the dry ingredients and combine just enough to moisten all of the ingredients and you have a lumpy batter. Transfer to the greased loaf pan.
Make the Streusel Topping and Bake!
To make the streusel topping combine flour, light brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter. Cut the butter in using a pastry cutter or food processor (or Nutribullet as I did). Pour onto the top of the batter in the loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 60-65 minutes or until top is a golden brown and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. When done, allow the banana bread to cool while still in the loaf pan for about 10 minutes before removing and transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
