Crumb Banana Bread

Man oh man, it's been a long time since I've blogged and for good reason. I had another sweet baby boy back in October and it's been quite the ride the past month trying to adjust. Things probably won't be "normal" for another year, but we can at least pretend.

Anyway, I thought a good banana bread recipe would be the perfect thing to share now that it's getting colder, darker and everyone is in the baking mood. I'm sure you're all sick of seeing pumpkin recipes and it's a little too early for peppermint so we'll go with banana.
This banana bread is dense, fluffy, moist and has the perfect crumb topping. It would be great with a glaze, but it's also perfect just the way it is.
I about ate the entire thing by myself and I blame the intense hunger from nursing, but I probably would have eaten most of it on my own anyway. It's that good.
