Cinnamon Streusel Banana Bread

A misty Sunday morning requires a little bit of pampering for breakfast.  Combining banana bread with my favorite streusel seemed like the perfect start to the day.






Cinnamon Streusel Banana Bread

Banana Bread

1/3 cup butter, softened
2/3 cups sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 3/4 cups flour
3 ripe bananas, mashed


Streusel

1/4 cup cold unsalted butter
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt

In a small bowl, use a pastry blender to combine the cold butter, dark brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt.  Mix until combined and then set aside.


Banana bread ~ cream together butter and sugar.  Add in eggs and mashed bananas.  Gradually add in dry ingredients.  Place 1/2 of banana bread mixture in a greased loaf pan.  Sprinkle 1/2 of the streusel on top.  top with the remaining banana bread.  Sprinkle the remaining streusel on top and bake for 1 hour at 325°.
