Banana Bread with Crunchy Streusel Topping

From: Jenn@eatcakefordinner

1 c. all-purpose flour

1/2 c. wheat flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 c. mashed bananas (2 1/2 - 3 bananas)

5 Tbl. unsalted butter, melted

3/4 c. sugar

1 egg

1/3 c. buttermilk


Streusel Topping

1/3 c. light brown sugar

2 Tbl. all-purpose flour

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 Tbl. cold unsalted butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the mashed bananas, melted butter, sugar, egg and buttermilk until smooth.  Add wet ingredients to dry and stir together until just combined.

Pour batter into a greased 9x5-inch loaf pan.  For the topping: Combine brown sugar, flour and cinnamon.  Add the cold butter and using your clean hands, work the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles wet sand.  Sprinkle topping over loaf.  Bake for 42-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  If the top begins to get too brown, tent a piece of foil over the top while it finishes baking.
