Banana Bread with Crumb Topping

The great thing about being a cheapo and not turning on the AC is that the bananas get nice and brown really fast....PERFECT for making some YUMMY Banana Bread.  (but then of course I have to use the AC if I use the oven...oh well!  Just get those bananas ripe fast, I hate when you want banana bread and you have to wait days for them to turn!)

Anyways, there are so many banana bread recipes and I'm sure you probably already have a favorite one to use.  My recipe is from the Better Homes and Garden Cookbook.  The one thing that just makes it extra yummy (but not extra healthy unfortunately) is to add a Crumb Topping.  So next time you make your banana bread, do this:

in a bowl, mix 3 TBSP flour, 3 TBSP brown sugar, 2 TBSP butter with about 1/2 tsp cinnamon.  
Use a pastry blender and mash together until it resembles coarse crumbs
Spread over the top of you Banana Bread before baking.
