Nicola has an extensive recipe collection on her blog. I spent several evenings browsing her blog. I was thinking I wanted to make something that had an unusual ingredient or was a recipe I wouldn't normally make. A few Sunday afternoon's ago, our first real fall day, I was in the mood to bake. I sat down to browse the baking section of Nicola's blog. When searching for a recipe, I try to locate one where I have the ingredients on hand. One particular recipe caught my eye, Banana Bread Crumble. At our house, both banana bread and crumbles are popular, so why not try a recipe that combines the best of both.
We loved this crumble, reminded me of a bread pudding with a crumble on top. This recipe is a keeper!!! Served alongside a scoop of chocolate ice cream, delicious!!
Banana Bread Crumble
Recipe Courtesy of Lemon and Cheese
140g self-raising flour
113g butter, melted
4 medium-size ripe bananas, sliced
For the crumble topping:
150g light brown sugar
70g self-rising flour
113g butter, softened
Preheat the oven to 180C. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and milk until just blended. Whisk in the melted butter.
Pour the batter into a lightly greased 28cm x 18cm baking dish. Top with the banana slices.
To make the topping, in a medium bowl use a fork to stir together the brown sugar, flour, and butter until it forms a crumbly mixture. Stir in the oats.
Sprinkle the topping mixture over the banana slices. Bake for 40-45 mins or until golden brown.
Serve with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce if you're feeling wicked
