Directions Step-By-Step

1
TO MAKE THE BANANA BREAD:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare desired pan/s generously with vegetable spray and set aside.
2
Cream butter and sugar together until fluffy. Add mashed bananas and eggs beat well.
3
Pour mix into a mixer bowl and make a well. Pour liquid ingredients into the well of the dry mix. Beat just until combined. Do Not Over Beat. Pour into prepared pans and spread as evenly as possible. For muffins/cupcakes with higher tops, fill cups 1/4 inch from the top (you will have a few less yield). (For regular muffins/cupcakes fill 3/4 full).
4
TO MAKE THE STREUSEL MIX:

Empty mix contents into a bowl. Cut the butter in with a pastry blender or a couple of butter knives. Mixture will resemble large peas (not bigger). Sprinkle on bread loaves, pans or muffin/cupcakes generously and evenly before baking.
5
Bake for designated times:
8-9" rounds for 30-35 minutes
13x9" 40-45 minutes
cupcakes/muffins 15-20 minutes
standard bundt 50-60 minutes
or until done; wooden skewer or knife inserted into the middle comes out clean.
6
Allow bread to cool in pan/s for 5 minutes before removing to cooling racks to cool completely. Refrigerate either in an airtight container or well wrapped in foil.
