Anyone else have a crazy busy week? I thought I was finally slowing down, but suddenly things just took off again.

However, I’m super excited because I’m looking forward to some awesome projects in the near future and can’t wait to share with you all. In other news, the other day I decided to make a Cinnamon Crumble Banana Bread since I had some bananas that I knew would be spoiling very soon. 

This banana bread recipe is my favorite and it’s also a crowd pleaser. The flavors work well together and the bread pairs up well with a cup of coffee or tea.

Feel free to tweak the ingredients to make it your own. In the past, I’ve even added chocolate chips to the banana bread for the days when I’m craving chocolate.

Ingredients

Banana Bread:
1 3/4 cups of flour
3/4 cup of white sugar
3/4 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of bananas mashed
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

Cinnamon Crumble Topping:
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of brown sugar
4 tablespoons of unsalted butter softened
1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Directions

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.

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 9×5 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 ensure 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. Now my slices look smaller in the photos because I used smaller loaf pans this particular day since I was making more than one loaf.

However, the flavor is exactly the same. Enjoy! 🙂

Do you like banana bread? I do enjoy it, but my husband absolutely loves it so I make it to please his banana bread loving heart.

I have been making this recipe from your blog for a couple of years now! Nevermind any other banana bread recipe! (It works just fine with regular milk, too.) Thank you for sharing it!

A very quiet group of boys just devoured two loaves, so I guess it was good? The cook didn't get a single morsel so I guess I'll need to go buy more bananas. OK, I know it was really good now because one boy just came in from outside and asked if I could PLEASE forward the recipe to his mom. Yeah!

Hi Jesenia. Love the taste of this recipe! I’m having trouble with my bread overflowing the 9x5 pan while baking. I tried using a springform pan which worked, but ends up being an odd shape to give as a gift. I’m going to try dividing it between two smaller loaf pans next. Another frustration is my bread sinking in the middle. Does anyone have a solution for that? Here is another question for you...why do you use a 325 degree oven?

I have this in the oven now and it smells so good. My 5 yr old had to test the batter and he said it tastes good.

I added some walnuts and some flax seed.

Can’t wait to get this in my belly!

This is my kids' absolute favorite banana bread recipe! They love to add chocolate chips into the batter. I love to add walnuts to the batter. They ask to buy extra bananas just to be sure we reserve extra ripe for this bread. We typically make a double batch because they freeze very well. Thank you!!
