Banana Bread with Crumble Topping

Recipe from Bakesale Betty: Oakland, CA. This was part of our Eating the Opponent challenge as the Packers prepared to play the Oakland Raiders.

Ingredients: banana bread batter
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour (or whole wheat pastry flour)
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed rip bananas - 2 to 3 medium
2 large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil or olive oil
1/4 cup honey (local, of course)

Crumble ingredients:
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 1/2 Tablespoons packed brown sugar

Butter and flour 9" by 5" by 3" bread pan or alternative
Whisk together flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl.
Whisk bananas, eggs, oil, and honey. add dry ingredients; stir to blend. Transfer batter to pan(s). Mix crumble ingredients; sprinkle over batter.

Bake bread at 350 for 1 hour - less if splitting it into smaller pans. Cool bread in pan for 30 minutes (if you can wait that long). Turn pan on its side; slide out bread, being gentle with topping. Turn bread right side up and cool completely.

This might just become my Christmas morning standard. It can bake and then cool while we're opening presents. By the time we've left the wrappings as playthings for the rabbit, we're hungry enough to enjoy a special treat. This banana bread with more could be just the right treat.
