    carmenskitchen's Note:

    This recipe was adopted from an old cookbook called "Texas Cookin" and is unlike any banana bread recipe I have ever tried. It is hands down the best banana bread and I wouldn't think of making another recipe. Just try it and you will see. The bread comes out in a perfect loaf, with a streusel like top and bottom that is so scrumptious!

      So I had good luck with this delicious banana bread. From reading the other review I sprinkled the top layer of streusel in a neat line down the center of the loaf-It looked and worked fabulously. I really appreciate you posting this recipe-I will be making it again(and again...and

      This was a very nice moist banana bread. I followed the recipe exactly. I'm wondering if the topping should have included a bit of flour because mine sunk into the middle of the bread. I used an insulated 9x5x3 pan and I baked it for 65 minutes. I like the fact that it makes one loaf. I plan on making this again with a different streusel to see if it stays where it should be. Thanks for a tasty recipe!
