Ingredients:

  • 1 cup plus all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • coarse salt
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk (I used 1/2 cup plain yogurt)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 large banana, mashed (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

 

For the topping:

  • 1 tablespoon cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • salt

 

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Butter a loaf pan.  Or be like me and use Pam.  I make enough mess in the kitchen. Me and butter hands don’t mix.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together 1 cup flour, the sugar, baking powder, baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon salt.

3. Stir in the melted butter and the buttermilk (yogurt if you wanna be like me). Add the egg and beat for 1 minute. Add the banana and vanilla. Stir until well combined. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared pan.

4. Make a topping by mashing together the tablespoon of cold butter with the tablespoon of flour, the brown sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Distribute the topping evening over the batter. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until cake tester or toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean.  Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.  Cut and serve from the pan.

I dare you to wait 10 minutes for it to be cooled.

 

Enjoy!
