Banana Bread with Streusel Topping


There is nothing like warm banana bread right out of the oven! Unfortunately bananas rarely get brown in our house. My kids (especially my baby girl) love bananas. The only time we have ripe enough bananas to make banana bread or frosted banana bars is when we go out of town. So that is exactly what happened! We went out of town and came home and had 1 day in between leaving out of town again and so I whipped up my absolute favorite banana bread. This moist banana bread with a yummy streusel topping with Diamond Nuts is the absolute best!

Banana Bread with Streusel Topping

3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 ripe bananas, mashed
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 3/4 cup flour

Streusel Topping:
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup Diamond Chopped Pecans

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a bowl, combined flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix sugar, eggs, oil and vanilla. Beat until frothy. Add mashed bananas and mix well. Add dry ingredients and combine until mixed. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Set aside and make the streusel topping. In another small bowl: mix the butter, brown sugar, and flour together until it is crumbly looking. Add the cinnamon, salt and chopped pecans. Fold it in all together. Pour on top of the batter in the greased loaf pan. Bake for 55-60 minutes. Test it with a knife before removing it from the oven. If the center takes longer to cook and the streusel starts to brown place a piece of foil over the top of the bread.
