Mini Crumb-Topped Sour Cream Banana Breads

Mini Crumb-Topped Sour Cream Banana Breads - ButterYum

This is a wonderful recipe that makes 10 mini loaves of cinnamon-y crumb-topped sour cream banana bread.  I love being able to pull one out of the freezer for a quick snack or gift.  I like to bake these in disposable foil pans so I don't have worry about my pans being returned.

Printable Recipe

Ingredients

Banana Bread:

  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 cups white granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 6 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 16 ounces sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Topping:

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (light or dark)
  • pinch of salt  

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300F and place rack in center. 
  2. Spray loaf pans with baking spray.
  3. Make the crumb topping in a small bowl by combining the melted butter and cinnamon, then stir in the flour, brown sugar, and salt; stirring until clumps form.  Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar; add eggs, bananas, sour cream, vanilla, and  cinnamon. 
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. 
  6. Stir the banana mixture and flour mixture together, just until combined. 
  7. Pour 1 cup of batter into each prepared mini loaf pan and sprinkle each with an equal amount of crumb topping. 
  8. Bake on center rack for 35-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserting in the center comes out clean. 
  9. Loaves can be removed from the pan after cooling for 20 minutes.  Cool completely before serving. 

Note:  I've tried many brands of disposable foil pans through the years and there's one brand that I like above all others - Handi-Foil.  In full disclosure, the Handi-Foil people have absolutely no idea who I am ;).  Anyway, these cute little pans are sold in sets of 5 for less than $2.  They have lovely scalloped walls and are sturdy enough to be used over and over again.  I find them at my grocery store.  Inferior brands bend out of shape when you simply pick them up - and definitely beware of brands that package their mini pans with a metal clip holding them together - they're the flimsiest.
