Looks Delicious! Banana Bread with Streusel Topping

Posted by in Looks Delicious!

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Looks Delicious! (Banana Bread with Streusel Topping, recipe submitted by Laurie McNamara of Simply Scratch.

This isn’t an effort to woo Ree over to the dark banana side. But if this doesn’t help, I don’t know what can. Tasty Kitchen member Laurie shares this incredible-looking recipe for Banana Bread with Streusel Topping and oh, this bread has so many good things going for it.

First, she roasts the bananas. That step alone sold me. Then, she ups the ante and makes a streusel jazzed up with walnuts and cinnamon. Hungry yet?

I made the mistake of visiting Laurie’s blog Simply Scratch on an empty stomach. By the time I got to the photo of the still-warm slice of banana bread with the butter melting on it, my tummy made a noise I once heard while hiking in the woods.

The ingredient list is fairly simple and if you have bananas and some walnuts (or even pecans) handy, chances are you have all you need to make this. If you do, don’t forget to invite me over!

Thanks, Laurie, for the wonderful, growl-inducing recipe!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Made this last night, my husband is convinced that I made banana bread “laced with something addictive!” I had to ad-lib some of the ingredients, specifically substituting some butter for applesauce because I didn’t have enough for a double batch I had already started. And I had no walnuts for the struessel topping, but everyone (myself included) loved it!

I just made this and followed the directions exactly and the middle of mine did not cook at all hopefully it wont burn while i try to cook it longer :/

Made this yesterday. It is delicious! Brought some in as a Valentine’s gift for my coworkers – they are loving it. I think roasting the bananas gives it that edge over other BB recipes. Thanks!

I made this last night as I had three ripe bananas beckoning me to do something with them. The bread rose almost over the top of the loaf pan, it was a good thing that I used parchment to line my pan because it helped the streusel topping to stay on. It was very yummy and enjoyed this morning for breakfast. Love the streusel topping!

Just what I need on this cold morning with my coffee. I always have banana’s hanging out in the freezer, in their skins, for just such a recipe. Now off to make the topping.

Wow this looks delicious! I love the streusel on top too!

I found out by sheer necessity that when ripe bananas are called for and there are none to be found, putting them in the oven and baking for awhile turns them nice and mushy and brown. But watch out for the liquid.

I just made a double batch for the family tonight. It rose out of the pan and I couldn’t get the struesel topping on it. Even without it, the family gave it rave reviews. My daughter who hates bananas even ate this with a smile!
