Original recipe yields 2 loaves



  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 loaf pans, 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches.
  2. To make the streusel topping, mix 1/4 cup of cut-up butter, 1/2 cup flour, brown sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and oats in a bowl until crumbly. Set aside.
  3. Cream the sugar and butter together in a bowl, and stir in the eggs. Add the bananas, buttermilk, and vanilla extract, and stir until the mixture is well blended. Beat in the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, cinnamon, and nuts.
  4. Scoop the batter into the prepared loaf pans. Sprinkle the top of each loaf with half the streusel topping.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, until the loaves have risen and the topping is browned. Let the banana bread cool in the pans for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to finish cooling.

Delicious, moist banana bread! I baked mine in one 9x5 glass loaf pan, so if you're like me and only want one bread here's what I did. I cut the topping in half. For the batter, I used 1/2 c. white sugar & 1/2 c. brown sugar, kept the same amount of butter, eggs, banana and vanilla. I used 1/4 c. of buttermilk, 2 c. of flour, 1 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice, 1 tsp. of baking powder, added 1 tsp. of baking soda, 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon & 1/2 c. of walnuts. The bread was done baking in a little over an hour and the topping was nice and crunchy.



Best banana bread ever!!!! It melted in your mouth, plus the topping made it fantastic!!! I never put topping on my banana bread before... now, I will always make it this way!!! Gave away loaves for a special Easter was received positively by all!!!!

This was the best banana bread ever!!! I did use equal portions of white and brown sugar-because I like my crust more chewy. I use a convection oven and only cooked it 1:05, but could have cooked it even less. My picky kids even love it!
