what you need
  • Topping:
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 TBS. butter or margarine, softened
  • Batter:
  • 6 Tbsp. butter or margarine, softened
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 ripe medium bananas, peeled & mashed
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
make it
Topping: In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, chopped walnuts and butter or margarine until mixture resembles course crumbles; Set aside.

Batter: Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spray a loaf pan or muffin tin lightly with vegetable pan spray. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, bananas and vanilla; mix well. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt and add to the butter mixture. Mix until just blended; do not over-mix. Gently stir in the walnuts. Pour into prepared pan; sprinkle topping evenly over the batter.

Bake 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a cooling rack for 15 minutes then remove from the pan and cool completely.
Sometimes I add chocolate chips: about 3 Tbsp. to the topping mixture and about 1/4 cup to the batter along with the walnuts. Can add more or less, as desired.
