This classic banana bread recipe is topped with a sweet crumb topping making it a cross between a quick bread and coffee cake! Coffee Cake Banana Bread is sure to be a new favorite! I feel like there is something important that needs to be discussed here that I’ve been far too silent on.

Traffic.

Traffic is a beast. A mind-numbing, foot-cramping, irritating beast.

For a while now (like a few years), traffic has been rough, and to help ease the situation, there is a massive amount of construction happening to widen the freeways, which, while in the long run might be helpful, is currently making a bad situation worse. Much, much worse.

I’m also probably one of the most hopeful people in the entire world, and every time I drive during rush hour, I always hope that maybe this time it will be different. It never is, but the dream is alive.

Luckily, I only drive through rush hour twice a week, but everyone else who drives it five days a week? They deserve a medal.

And coffee cake banana bread. And peach pie scones. And lemon coconut cake.

Anyway…

If I could without it being ridiculously awkward, while we all slowly trudge through the morning traffic, I would totally pass out slices of this banana bread.

When it comes to crumb toppings, there is no room for stinginess. Crumb topping scrooges are not welcome here.

So, in case you were concerned, there is plenty of topping on this bread to go around. I may or may not have made a double batch of topping to cover this one loaf of bread.

It was necessary.

    I feel ya on the traffic. I hate it and I drive in it 5 days a week. It’s particularly bad right around my job – in the evening, it can take 20-30 minutes to go three miles on one of the main roads. Ahhhhh. Luckily, I’ve found a short cut that cuts back on some of that mess! I’ll have to take some of this banana bread with me during the work week so I can snack on it while being stuck in traffic. 🙂

    The traffic in my city has gotten so bad, it’s so frustrating when it takes twice as long to get where I need to go. I would love to have a slice of this beautiful bread to nibble on while I’m fuming (driving). So good!

    We’re going to be moving in about a month to a city with much more traffic than our current location. NOT looking forward to that part. As for the bread – I would love a piece of this to go with my morning tea.

    This is one of the best banana bread recipes I have ever used. Definitely top 3! 😀
    I turned them into muffins because my boys will NOT eat quick breads of any kind, but they’ll eat pretty much anything that comes in muffin form.

    350 degrees for 18 minutes. It made exactly 18 muffins & they couldn’t be more perfect. Thank you for such an incredible recipe, I will be using it often! 😀

    P.S. I also have my eye on your maple glazed banana bread! *drool*
