Banana Bread with Crumb Topping is perfect any time of year. But, with winter weather it’s even nicer to bake and enjoy this tasty bread made with bananas. It’s either been really cold in the morning and night almost to the point of freezing or rainy. I’ll take rainy over 23 degrees. I know I am a wimp when it comes to weather. I can visit cold weather and snow just fine but, keep me in CA. I could never handle living in the snow! One way I love heating my home is by baking in the winter. I have a favorite go-to banana bread – quick bread recipe. I am always adding spins to this recipe. Today I’m sharing a twist I tried on my banana bread recipe.
I saw on Pinterest that some folks were making their banana bread with a crumble topping. I thought I’d try it. Although I think I needed a little less butter for the crumble it turned out tasting amazing. The thing about baking is it brings me closer to my grandma who instilled the love of baking in me. I even worked in a bakery when I first started college.
Sometimes I dream if I could do anything in the world I’d open a little coffee shop with hand-baked goods, changing on a whim. With my artwork hanging in the cafe. Then reality hits, that would be so much work! Not that that’s a bad thing at all. Just as I get older I have already spent years working jobs with crazy long hours, starting at 3: 30 am. But, who knows never say never. Right?!
What I love about banana bread is it is one of those sweetbreads that my grandma would make all the time. Probably because bananas are so economical. Or was it because it’s the one healthy thing in the bread besides nuts that makes you justify every single last bite.
Banana Bread with Crumb Topping
Oh, she didn’t stop there though. She was old school and butter always made things better. Cut a slice of warm banana bread and spread that butter ever so gently over the top.
Watch it start to melt, take it in your hands and savor a bite. Or two or…..Well, you get the picture. I love putting my fresh loaf on the counter for everyone to just come grab a slice. I can’t help but, share. My hips thank me.
I don’t think you can consider lifting the bread to your mouth a workout that is unless you are working out your chewing muscles. Anyway don’t think about it! Just make some sweet, deliciously moist banana bread with the extra crumble topping or skip the topping. And if you feel guilty take a walk, or jog…
