Pecan Streusel Banana Bread


Where have I been?

What have I been up to?

Oh how I wish I could tell you a tale of adventure and romance, or fame and fortune...

the truth, however, lies in the comedy of errors that I call life.

So rather than read you a laundry list of excuses, I'll share with you a favorite recipe that fills the belly and, when shared with the right people, warms the heart.



Banana Bread
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
pinch of fresh grated lemon rind
2 beaten eggs
1 1/4 cup mashed ripe banana
Pecan Streusel Topping
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup cold butter (cubed)
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Topping: Combine brown sugar, flour, and pecans. Add butter and mix until crumbly.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease loaf pan.

Combine flour, baking soda, salt and set aside. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir in flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle streusel topping over batter. Bake for approximately 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto wire rack.



Enjoy!
