OK this post is especially for Gabriela who loves banana bread like me and was looking for a recipe with a crumb topping. I'm taking this recipe out of the Better Homes and Garden cookbook, but I've tried it and it is really good.
2 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. salt
2 beaten eggs
1 1/2 c. mashed bananas (5 medium)
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. oil, melted butter or margarine
1/4 c. chopped walnuts (optional)
1 recipe Streusel Topping
Grease bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of one 9x5 or two 7x3 loaf pans; set aside. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Set aside.
In another bowl, combine eggs, bananas, sugar and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir until moistened. Add nuts, if desired. Spoon bater into prepared pan(s). Sprinkle Streusel Topping over batter.
Bake at 350 for 55-60 minutes for 9x5 pan, or 40-45 minutes for 7x3 pans or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. If desired cover loosely with foil the last 15 minutes to prevent browning. Cool in pan for 10 minutes and then remove.
Mix together 1/4 c. packed brown sugar and 3 T. flour. Cut in 2 T. butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add 1/3 c. chopped walnuts if desired.
I hope you enjoy it!
