You are probably wondering what a recipe is doing on this blog. Honestly because I wanted to share, it’s that simple. I’m all about simple when I cook or bake. I have to be, life is to crazy busy in my household for anything more.
When I do make something and post to my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/cakesbymelody I will get the comment “recipe please.” For the sake of my followers I’ll be posting what I make on here under recipes.
Banana Bread with crumb topping ( This recipe originated from,
with just a few tweaks).
Let’s get started:
Seems simple enough huh?
In one bowl dump in the mashed bananas, melted butter, sugar, the egg, milk and vanilla and combine. Simple!
It says to sift the flour, baking powder and salt together. I don’t have time for that. I always just use a whip and mix it all together. You can do this however you want. I just do what is fastest and simplest for me.
As you can guess it’s time now to add the dry with the wet. Stir together until combined (don’t over mix)
There you go, ready for the oven? Nope not just yet with this recipe. I love banana bread but what I love more is banana bread with crumb topping.
Crumb topping all ready to go. Now just sprinkle it over the banana mix.
Now it’s ready for the oven. Bake at 350 for about an hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
TADA, there you have it the finally scrumptious banana bread. To think I still have bananas left to make some more.
