brown butter banana bread

This brown butter banana bread combines nutty brown butter, sweet bananas, and a crunchy streusel topping for the perfect treat.

Brown unsalted butter until nutty and golden. Pour into a bowl and let cool while working on the bread batter.


Whisk together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt.


Mix together mashed banana, eggs, and vanilla.


Add banana mixture to the dry ingredients until combined. Stir in the brown butter. Pour batter into a 10x5-inch loaf pan.


Mix together flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Work in softened butter until clumps form.


Sprinkle streusel over the bread batter. Bake for 1 hour 10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.


Let bread cool 15 minutes in the pan, then remove and finish cooling on a wire rack before slicing. Enjoy!
