I’m a simple, rustic girl when it comes to baking. I don’t like things that are too complicated. One bowl recipes…my favorite. Don’t get me wrong, I love decorating cupcakes and creating layered cakes. But when I’m in the mood to bake (which is pretty much all the time), I always go for those easy recipes. The ones that take no time to put together and are ready to go in the oven within minutes.
That’s why I love me some mini banana streusel loaves! Fresh, warm banana bread that doesn’t take quite as long to bake. I changed my most favorite banana bread recipe and added a streusel topping. I might be ruined. I don’t think I’ll ever make banana bread again without this streusel topping. It adds a little extra sweetness, crunch and texture. You’ll be eating every last crumb of these banana streusel loaves, I can promise you that!
