To crunch or not to crunch. That is your choice with this amazingly easy and tasty English banana bread! When I say crunch, I’m talking about the topping that is optional that you can put on top when baking. It’s a simple step that uses a little more butter, brown sugar and chopped walnuts, all ingredients in the batter.
English Banana Bread
Now this recipe is special, real special. It is the creation of my dear cupcake goddess who’s blog ‘Something About Cupcakes’ is a resounding success and hit on Facebook. Her cupcakes aren’t just rogue cupcakes like I would make. Beverley’s cupcakes and other baked goods are masterpieces. They’re truly works of art. They’re little cups of love that you want just to look at, turn and rotate, and wonder in your mind, how in the world does she do it!
Since I love banana bread, and she does, too, we decided to make each others’ recipes for it. Beverley tried my ‘Chunky Banana Bread’ and, of course, I tried her traditional, tried and true, proven ‘english banana bread’. The only thing that I added to Beverley’s awesome recipe is the topping, which is optional. I was in the mood for a little crunch, and figured this was an easy way to get it to happen. Now, I call it English ‘banana bread’ because my luv, Beverley, lives in England and while we’ve never met in person, I feel like I know this wonderful girl very well. We’ve developed a strong and loving relationship over the years on Facebook talking to each other almost every single day. Always admiring each others’ work, we share in the everyday happenings of life, children, travels and just living.
