Cinnamon Crumble Banana Bread

Cinnamon Crumble Banana Bread

On Sunday I was preparing my lesson to teach the young women in my church and I knew I needed to bring a treat for them, but we go to church in the morning so I wanted something that was kind of in the breakfast baked goods category.  So when I saw that our bananas were getting really ripe and needed to be used, banana bread was the perfect solution and this recipe is unlike any other.  It's amazing!  Seriously you will love this bread and want to make it over again.  Enjoy!!




1 3/4 cups of flour

3/4 cup of white sugar

3/4 cup of brown sugar

1 cup of bananas mashed [about 3 bananas]

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/3 cup buttermilk

2 eggs

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1 teaspoon of baking soda

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon of salt


1/2 cup of flour

1/2 cup of brown sugar

4 tablespoons of unsalted butter softened

1 teaspoon of cinnamon


cinnamon crumble banana bread


Whisk eggs, buttermilk and oil together.  Mix well and set aside.  Add flour, salt and baking soda and cinnamon to a separate bowl.  Stir to mix the ingredients well and set aside.

Peel and mash banana with a fork.  They will look like lumpy baby food.

Add white sugar, brown sugar, mashed bananas and vanilla to the egg mix.  Stir until it's mixed well.  Add flour mix and stir well until ingredients are mixed.  Pour bread mixture into a greased 9x5 pan.

For the crumble topping - Add brown sugar, flour and cinnamon to the softened butter.  Mix until the mixture begins to look lumpy.  I find that mixing with a fork helps.  Break up larger pieces with fingers if needed.  Sprinkle the topping evenly all over the banana bread mix.

Bake at 325 degrees for 75-85 minutes, check with a toothpick to make sure the inside is done.  The first time I made this, I baked it for less time and it was a bit mushy inside although it appeared done on the outside.  If you want to bake it in less time feel free to cover with aluminum foil to speed up the process.

Cut a slice and enjoy the banana cinnamon goodness!
