Becky’s Banana Bread

This is a recipe I got from Becky Crane. We stayed with the Cranes when we went snowboarding one year, and on our way up to The Canyons, she sent us out the door with a warm piece of this bread. It is to die for! When we got back to California, I called Becky to get the recipe. In true Utah-Mormon-Super-Mom fashion, she answered, “Oh which one was it…I have so many banana bread recipes!” I’ve made this many times since over the years and it never fails to please.

What makes it for me is the streusel topping. See the line of buttery, caramelized goodness on top? You really don’t even need to put butter on this when it’s hot out of the oven, but I won’t tell if you do :)

1 1/2 c. flour

1 1/2 t. baking powder

3/4 t. baking soda

1/4 t. salt

1/4 t. nutmeg

1/4 t. cinnamon

Mix dry ingredients & set aside.

1 c. mashed bananas

2 eggs

1/3 c. sugar

1/4 c. melted butter

Mix & add dry mixture. Pour into greased pan.


1/2 c. flour

1/2 c. brown sugar

1/4 c. softened butter

1/2 t. nutmeg

1/2 t. cinnamon

Mix, sprinkle on top of bread batter & bake at 350 for 45-50 min.
