The “extra special” comes from the added spices—like a banana/spice bread friendship!
Preheat oven to 325º. Spray 2 loaf pans with baking spray (oil + flour)—I use Baker’s Joy in the blue can.
In a large bowl, add your mushy bananas, white sugar and melted butter. Use a fork to mash them all together. Don’t worry about the banana lumps, it’s all good! Add eggs and mix with a fork to combine. Add all the dry ingredients and mix with a large spoon or spatula to combine (no need to break out the mixer for this one!). Now add your sour cream and vanilla.
Divide mixture between your 2 loaf pans. (It’s ok that it only fills them each 1/2 way up—this loaf will rise! I made the mistake once of putting all the batter in one pan. Total overflow to the max!)
For the streusel topping, combine brown sugar, white sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle generously on top of each unbaked loaf.
Bake at 325º for about an hour (check after 50 minutes in case your oven runs hot), until a toothpick inserted in center of the loaf comes out clean.
This banana bread is so moist and flavorful, you’ll never look back!
