Brown Butter Banana Bread

This was a great banana bread recipe. It was delicious and super easy! The bread comes out so moist and the crumb topping adds the perfect touch!

For the Bread:
1 stick Unsalted Butter
1 and 1/2 cup Flour
1 pinch Salt
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1 Egg
1 cup Sugar
2 Bananas, Mashed
2 Tbsp Milk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

For the Crumb Topping:
1/4 cup Flour
2 Tbsp Sugar
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
2 Tbsp Unsalted Butter, Cold

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan, and set aside.

For the Brown Buttter: In a small saucepan, over medium-high heat, cook the butter, stirring occasionally, until it darkens. (Do not burn it, cook it until it smells nutty.) Once the butter has browned, remove from the heat, and cool slightly.

For the Crumb Topping: While the butter is browning, combine the ingredients for the crumb topping in a medium bowl. Use your hands or a fork to mix the 2 Tablespoons of cold butter into the dry topping ingredients until crumbly, pea-sized crumbs form. Set aside.

Back to the bread… In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon, and set aside.

In the bowl of your mixer, combine the egg and sugar, and mix at medium speed until light and fluffy. Mix in the cooled brown butter slowly. Add the mashed bananas, the milk and the vanilla extract, and mix on medium speed until combined. Mix in the flour mixture until combined.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the top of the batter.

Bake for about 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool before enjoying!
