Banana bread isn’t popular in my country. Neither my mother nor my grandmas have ever made it (bananas were really rare and expensive in Lithuania in the 90’s so that’s clearly a reason why). I learned about this goodness only when I opened Yummy Addiction and started spending more time on Pinterest. Since then I never looked back.

The love of Americans for this sweet loaf is perfectly understandable. The banana, vanilla and cinnamon flavor combination is just irresistible. I was hooked the very first time I tried this bread.

Plus, banana bread is so easy to make. It requires like 10 minutes of your active time and an oven does the rest. Even an amateur cook can nail it!

I remember reading somewhere that the United States is not the place for desserts. Well, I don’t know about that. This moist banana bread and tons of amazing stuff on Pinterest prove this statement wrong!

The lesson I learned about banana bread – the moister it is, the better. I tried many different recipes and not all of them were good. Some of them were really bad actually. I kept looking for the perfect recipe, though. One fail after another, I am pleased to say that I FOUND THE ONE!

I went even further and finished this loaf with a crunchy streusel topping. Should I even say that it’s great? This topping raised the bread to another level. They go so well together!

Ingredients

For the bread:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • a dash of nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter , softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 large eggs , at room temperature
  • 4 very ripe bananas , mashed with a fork or potato masher
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup walnuts , toasted and chopped

For the streusel topping:

  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter , slightly softened and cut into pieces
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Set aside.
  • The streusel topping. Add the flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a medium bowl and mix until combined. Cut in the butter using your fingers or a pastry blender, until it resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in chopped walnuts. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.
  • Cream the butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well in between each addition. With a wooden spoon, stir in the mashed bananas, buttermilk and vanilla. Slowly stir in the dry ingredients. Once the flour is incorporated, stop right there. Do NOT over stir. Gently stir in walnuts. The batter will be thick.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle the streusel topping evenly over the batter. Bake the bread for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and cool 10-15 minutes in the pan on a wire rack. Remove the bread from the pan and continue to cool on the wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Notes

Cover the bread with plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 3 days.

    This bread turned out beautiful! The ingredient proportions for the loaf were appropriate and made for a very moist, mildly sweet bread. My struesel topping was very smooth instead of crumbly. I believe that the two tablespoons of butter were too much. I even added more flour to try to fix the problem, but I had no luck. Anyhow, the topping just melted and baked into the top of the loaf. That was just fine with me πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing the recipe. I rate it 4 stars!!!

    Hi Jovita,

    I baked this banana bread this morning, doubled the recipe and cut the sugar almost half of it since my family doesn’t like sweet too much and I think the taste of banana from tropical country is much more sweeter. It turned out soooo…good, moist and very tasty!! The streussel crumbs at the top also perfect! This is the best banana recipe I’ve ever tried so far. Thanks so much for sharing it.

    Best banana bread recipe and I’ve made quite a few! I love the streusel topping. It is sweet and crunchy, not like a crumble on top of muffins. I made this in a pyrex glass pan, and had to pull it out about 20 min into the baking. It was overflowing like crazy so I put it into a backing sheet. My family had no problem with gobbling up the spillage when I was checking for doneness. I also used King Arthur white whole wheat flour which added to the nuttiness and made me feel a bit less bad about scarfing down 3 slices immediately. In the future, if the batter fills more than 3/4 of the loaf pan, I will use the rest as muffins. Thank you for this recipe, Jovita! I can’t wait for more bananas to over ripen.5 stars

    The banana bread came out perfect! I had to bake it in my Bundt pan. (I couldn’t find my bread pan.) The topping was crunchy and delicious! Thank-you for the recipe. My new favorite.5 stars

    The best, to quote my son ” man this bread is mad good” it’s absolutely delicious. I didn’t have buttermilk, so I used a dallop of vanilla Greek yogurt with some milk to make the 1/4 cup. Baked it in loaf pan with parchment paper. The streusel makes this bread extra!!!!! First time making and it turned out perfectly. Do check on it, mine needed 1 hr 15mins.5 stars

    If I could give it 10 stars, I would. I’ve tried a gazillion banana bread recipes and nothing even comes close to this. And I love banana anything! I did tweek it slightly: I despise buttermilk, even in recipes, so I went with a buttermilk alternative, milk and lemon juice (I think it makes a difference). Since I LOVE banana flavor, I also added about 3/4 – 1 tsp pure banana extract in addition to the vanilla and when I added the streusel topping, I pressed it into the batter just a bit so it wouldn’t crumble off the bread. Normally, recipes I get off the internet end up in the garbage (I think they make up their own reviews). Not this one. It’s definitely a keeper.5 stars

    Hi, I’m from Mexico and here this bread isn’t very well known. It is only available in some coffe shops (but some cases it’s dry), so I was looking the perfect recipe and I proved some without succes but last year I founded out this one and I tried it. The results were a perfect moisty and delicius bread. Thank you a lot.5 stars

    This banana bread recipe was a big hit in our home. I made it three times in 2 weeks πŸ‘πŸ»The streusel complemented the bread very well. A friend who was able to taste it wants me to make again and sell it to her and/or accept orders😊

    Perfect banana bread. I had to make a few adjustments because I didnt have brown sugar (What?! Lol its one thing I always have) so I used all white, used pecans cuz thats what we love and made my own buttermilk. Not huge adjustments & it was amazing. Highly recommend.5 stars

    Hi! What size of bananas did you use? I am from a tropical country and we have different varieties of bananas sold in wet markets and supermarkets. May I know how many cups of mashed bananas I should use for this. Thank you so much!

      I use medium bananas, they are usually 7-8 inches in length. Sorry, at the moment I can’t say how many cups of mashed bananas they make πŸ™‚

    I live in a Senior Independent Living facility and I bake for the staff and the residents. The all-time favorite is the Moist Banana Bread. The staff makes sure I get ripe bananas. My question is how many cups of mashed bananas should be used?5 stars

    Really really delicious! Was craving banana bread and this hit the spot perfectly πŸ™‚ I loved the crunchy streusel topping addition!! So glad you included walnuts in your recipe, as far as I’m concerned, banana bread is only worth eating with the addition of nuts πŸ™‚ Unfortunately the dog I’m dog sitting jumped up on the counter and ripped through the plastic bag I was keeping it in and ate the half of the loaf I had left this morning 😭 Im so sad, I was planning on eating it for breakfast all week! But definitely will be making again very soon πŸ™‚ Thanks for such a stellar recipe πŸ˜„5 stars

    I have never left a review before but had to come back today because this recipe is by far the best banana bread we have ever made!! The streusel topping puts it right over the top! The flavor is amazing! I did make one adjust, only used 1/2 the white sugar. Thank you so much for this recipe! My girls made French Toast with it this morning and it was out of this world!!5 stars
