Banana Bread is a favorite of my family. I keep wanting to make french toast out of some, but I can't ever steal away some to try it with. It is always gone immediately; even when I take it to family reunions where there is a plethara of fine desserts! This is a recipe that I have had since I was young and have tweaked it over the years, and added the streusel on top.

Make a well in center of mixture and set aside. In a medium bowl combine eggs, bananas, sugar and butter. Add egg mixture all at once to floour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Fold in the nuts. Spoon batter into prepared pan/s. Sprinkle Streusel-Nut Topping all over the top of the bread/s (optional).
  2. Bake for 55-60 minutes OR until a wooden pick inserted into the middle comes out clean.. If necessary cover loosely with foil the last 15 minutes of baking to prevent over-browning. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan, cool on wire racks completely. Wrap and store overnight before slicing.

    1/2 cup walnuts, chopped not coarse, but not too fine.
