  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup sour cream (or Greek yogurt- plain or vanilla)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2-3 bananas)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose or bread flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup peeled & diced apple (about 1 small apple)

Streusel Topping

  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp melted butter


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp hot water


  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray two 8" or 9" loaf pans with non-stick baking spray and set aside. 
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, sour cream and vegetable oil. Add mashed bananas, sugars and vanilla and stir until well combined.
  • In a smaller bowl combine dry ingredients and whisk until well incorporated.
  • Pour the flour mixture into the banana mixture and stir until just combined. Fold in apples.
  • Pour half the batter into each baking pan. Combine streusel ingredients and stir until mixture is uniform and crumbly. Sprinkle half streusel mix over each loaf.
  • Bake for 60-70 minutes, until internal temp of the middle of baked bread registers 200°F with a cooking thermomete
  • Remove from oven and let cool in bread pans for about 20 minutes. Overturn onto a cooling rack to cool fully.
  • Whisk powdered sugar together with hot water. Drizzle over cooled bread. Let icing cool to set (it's fast!) then slice and serve. Store leftovers in an airtight container.


Recipe yields TWO 8" loaves of bread. You can use 9" bread pans- they'll just be a bit shorter loaves.
