Author: Butter With A Side of Bread


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk or 1/2 cup milk + 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 ripe bananas mashed
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Crumb Topping
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x13 or 8x11 glass pan with nonstick spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, melted butter, buttermilk and vanilla. Stir until combined. Add in bananas.
  • Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Mix 1/3 of the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, stirring just until combined. Repeat until ingredients are completely mixed. (Note: quick breads/ cakes like this do better if mixed by hand! Don't over mix and it's okay if there are a few lumps!)
  • Pour batter in the prepared pan.
  • To prepare the crumb topping, combine all ingredients except butter. Cut butter into small pieces and add to the mixture. Using a pastry cutter (or 2 forks) blend the ingredients until crumbly. Pour over top of batter in the pan.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes. Let cool and drizzle with a simple glaze- 3/4 cup powdered sugar + 1 TBSP melted butter + 2 tsp milk, all whisked together.
