I had a bunch of bananas that really needed to be used, so looked around for a recipe for banana bread. With a few changes, this one was a hit!
For the bread:
1 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 t baking powder
3/4 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1/4 t nutmeg
1/4 t cinnamon
1 1/2 c mashed banana
1/3 c sugar
1 T melted butter
For the topping:
1/2 c flour
1/2 c packed light brown sugar
1-2 T soft butter
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 2 bread pans well (bread will stick if they are not properly greased).
Mix together first 6 ingredients in a small bowl. Mix next 4 ingredients in a larger bowl, and slowly beat in flour mixture until well mixed. (I used my kitchenaid for the larger bowl, and it worked very well.)
Pour the bread dough evenly into the two pans.
For the topping: combine all ingredients, adding butter as needed to make a crumbly topping. Divide and sprinkle over the two loaves.
Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. (I had one that was done right at 30 minutes, and another that needed more time. If it is getting brown but is still not cooked through, you can cover it with foil.)
Cool for a few minutes before removing from pans and cooling completely on wire racks.
We ate this for breakfast, heated up and with butter on it. It was delicious! My husband also took some in to work, as we only needed one loaf, and it went over well there, too.
Wonder where I can find some more bananas??
