Walnut Crusted Banana Bread

I have made so many loafs of banana bread throughout the years and I have no idea why I haven't thought of this sooner.  The banana bread is perfectly moist and the walnut crust is divine.  This is definitely my new "go to" banana bread recipe.

Ingredients for Bread:
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
Ingredients for Pecan Crust:
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • dash of cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixer beat bananas, butter, egg and sugars until smooth.
  3. Mix all remaining dry ingredients into a large bowl and stir.
  4. Slowly beat in dry mixture until smooth.
  5. Pour mixture into a greased 4x8 loaf pan.
  6. Add all crust ingredients into a bowl and mix together with a fork until crumbly.
  7. Sprinkle the banana bread batter with the crust mixture evenly.
  8. Bake for 1 hour or until toothpick comes out clean.
