Ingredients

  • 1 1/2

    cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3 large)

  • 1

    cup granulated sugar

  • 1/2

    cup butter, melted

  • 2

    eggs

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

  • 2

    cups all-purpose flour (I used unbleached flour)

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/4

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 3/4

    cup chopped walnuts

  • Streusel:

  • 2/3

    cup packed brown sugar

  • 1/2

    cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2

    teaspoon cinnamon

  • 4

    Tablespoons cold butter

  • 1/2

    cup chopped walnuts

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9×5″ loaf pan; set aside. Prepare the streusel: In small bowl, stir together the brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in walnuts, then set aside. Batter: In large bowl, beat together bananas, sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir into banana mixture. Then stir in walnuts. Spoon HALF the batter into greased-and-floured loaf pan. Sprinkle batter with HALF of the streusel mixture. Add the rest of the batter over the streusel mixture in the pan, then top with the remaining streusel. Bake at 350 degrees for 60 to 70 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean (my baking time was 70 minutes). Let loaf cool in pan for 15 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely. You can wrap the loaf in plastic wrap and store for up to 2 days, or wrap in foil and freeze for up to a month.
