Banana bread isn’t popular in my country. During the whole of my life neither my mother nor my grandma ever made banana bread. But I imagine yours did. And it was really good, right?

This is the second time I’m baking this bread. The first one was two weeks ago. That one was tasty, but not the best. So, I decided to make some modifications and the result is PERFECT now – super moist banana bread with crunchy streusel topping! Oh my! This is sooo good!
Now I know why you love this bread so much. I’m in love with this too! The banana, vanilla and cinnamon flavor combination is driving me crazy… It’s is just irresistible.
For the bread:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
a dash of nutmeg
½ cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature
4 very ripe bananas, mashed with a fork or potato masher
¼ cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
For the streusel topping:
3 tablespoons flour
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoon unsalted butter, slightly softened and cut into pieces
¼ cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9×5 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.
