Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Streusel Topping

  • 3 TBSP packed brown sugar
  • 2 TBSp flour
  • 4 tsp cold butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Caramel Glaze

  • 5 TBSP butter
  • 3 TBSP caramel ice cream topping
  • dash of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray your bread pan with non-stick spray specifically for baked goods. Set aside.
  • Whisk together dry ingredients and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, sugar and butter until smooth. Add in banana. Stir again until banana is incorporated.
  • Combine wet ingredients and dry ingredients, including chopped nuts and stir. Pour batter into prepared bread pan.
  • To make streusel topping, mash the brown sugar, flour and cold butter with a fork until it's uniformly crumbly. Stir in nuts and sprinkle the mixture over the bread batter.
  • Bake 50-55 minutes, until internal temperature of the bread reads 200 degrees F. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then overturn on a cooling rack.
  • To make the caramel glaze, combine butter and caramel topping in a bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Whisk in salt and powdered sugar. Let cool slightly, then drizzle over cooled banana nut bread. Top with additional chopped nuts, if desired.
