Go Bananas Crumb Bread

We get a lot of rain in Oregon, and I often find myself cooking and baking to help keep the kids and I entertained on wet days when we are stuck inside. One of my family's rainy day favorites is Banana bread. —

    Mine just didn't turn out to my liking. Followed the recipe as it is. Cooked an hour because it was raw in the middle at 50-53 minutes. It was a bit dry, but maybe I had to take it out when it was still semi raw?? I don't know, but the topping tasted like a strange sugar brittle to me..not a crumble. I wouldn't say it's bad...just different than any banana bread I've ever had before.

    I really wanted this recipe to be amazing. I've made it twice hoping to have a different result, but both times, it's turned out that the middle is not cooked. The crumble top ends up tasting a little burnt and keeps the dough from cooking all the way through:(

    This was a hit!!!! I used half flour and half gluten free flour. I did add pecans. The bread was so moist and delicious. I am going to make again with all gluten free flour.
