For the banana bread

  • 1 pound banana, ripe (approximately 4 bananas)
  • 1 cup sugar in the raw
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat sour cream

For the topping

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and diced
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup sugar in the raw
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Powdered sugar to garnish



Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Sift all dry ingredients and set aside. Place the butter and sugar in the mixer and whisk until white. Add honey, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, eggs, ripe banana and sour cream and whisk until everything is incorporated. Add the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth, being careful not to overmix.

For the topping, mix all the ingredients together and work through with your hands until the mixture is crumbly.

Coat the bread mold (approximately 13” in diameter x 2.5” high) in butter and pour in the banana bread mix. Spread the crumbly topping evenly. Place the mold in the middle rack of the oven for approximately 35 – 40 minutes. Once the bread is golden brown, remove it from the oven and let cool. Sprinkle a dusting of powdered sugar before presenting.
