Instructions

As usual, when we are baking something let’s turn on the oven and preheat it to 350°. While waiting the oven to be hot enough, in a big bowl combine cream butter with brown sugar until the mix is light and fluffy. Add eggs to the mixture, one at a time, blending well after each egg.

In another bowl, combine bananas, sour cream, maple syrup, and vanilla.

In the third bowl, whisk dry ingredients – flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to creamed mixture alternately with the banana mix, beating well after each addition. Fold in pecans (or any other nuts you like!).

Take a greased 9×5-in. loaf pan and transfer there our bread batter.

To make the streusel, blend well flour, sugars, butter, and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir in pecans, sprinkle over batter.

Baking the Maple Banana Bread takes up to an hour. You can check if it is ready by inserting a toothpick in the center and see if it comes out clean.

Cool the bread in pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.

Homemade Bread with Banana and Maple Syrup is a wonderful dessert with rich taste and great nutritious characteristics! You can enjoy it with or without any topping – it is still a highly pleasant dish!
