Banana Honey Nut Loaf

This would be better if you made two smaller loaves.  Mine was getting a little overdone but the middle wasn't cooked yet so it tastes a little too done.  I think it could be good though, with some adjustments.

I was almost out of walnuts so I used a mixture of walnuts and pecans.

Banana Honey Nut Loaf

3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 Tb honey
pinch of salt

2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
2 large eggs
2/3 cup honey
2/3 cup vegetable oil
2 large over-ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

Make topping:  in medium size bowl, blend together flour and butter with your fingertips.  Stir in nuts, honey and salt, then work mixture together with your hands to make crumbs (mixture will be very moist). Set aside.

In large bowl, prepare loaf:  whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and nutmeg.  Make a well in center of dry ingredients.  In medium sized bowl, whisk eggs, honey, oil, mashed banana and vanilla.  Pour into well in flour mixture and stir until just combined.  Stir in nuts and transfer batter to prepared pan.  Sprinkle with topping.

Bake for 55 minutes.  Cool in pan on wire rack for 20 minutes, then remove from pan directly to rack and cool completely.
