2 cups unsifted all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup mashed banana (2 large or 3 medium)
3 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg

6 Tbsp all purpose flour
6 Tbsp packed brown sugar
3 Tbsp softened (not melted) unsalted butter
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a bread pan liberally and set aside. Sift dry ingredients together and set aside. In a medium bowl, mash bananas, add milk and vanilla then blend well. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy, then beat in the egg until completely incorporated. Add banana mixture and mix well. With a hand mixer on low speed, gradually add the flour mixture until just combined. Pour batter into greased bread pan and smooth the top. Combine all streusel ingredients together with fingers and sprinkle on top of the bread mixture. Bake 40 to 50 minutes until done (center of bread may appear uncooked, but will set while cooling. Do not overcook as bread can become dry!)
