Flavorful Cinnamon Crumb Banana Bread is a quick bread recipe with swirls of buttery cinnamon sugar throughout and streusel crumb topping. This is great for breakfast, brunch, or dessert and is out of this world!
Happy Tuesday! I went to work with Mr. Wishes yesterday to have lunch together. It was the best day to go to a cafe and work outside at a table because it was 80 degrees! Gotta take advantage of these days, ya know? It seriously seemed like the entire world was out today: rollerblading, motorcycles, jogging, eating outside – gotta pack it all into the one summer-like day we may get for a while. That is how we roll in Rochester! Now, let’s talk about this Cinnamon Crumb Banana Bread that would be just perfect for Easter brunch or any occasion.
I’m so glad you’re here! Follow along on Pinterest for more inspiration!
It’s no secret that I love banana bread. Like, love it. I have my Coconut Banana Bread that if you haven’t made yet I seriously feel sorry for you. Of course, my all-time favorite: Caramel Macchiato Banana Bread with a caramel glaze you will want to eat with a spoon. And who could forget about my Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Banana Bread? All are equally good in their own ways and I love them all. Banana bread is one of my favorite snacks/breakfast/dessert EVER.
I don’t think I can ever eat banana bread without the crumb streusel topping ever, ever again. I may or may not have eaten this as if I hadn’t eaten real food in a week. The end.
