Yes it's the mushy banana's that make great banana nut bread. I have made a lot of banana nut bread but never quite like this recipe. Cinnamon crumble on top what a change. I was having such a hard time reading the recipe, we had just finished watching Seven Pounds and my eyes were so puffy couldn't see the recipe. Skeptical Mike was helping waiting to go on our 11PM bike ride. The crumb topping after cooked almost presents a coffee flavor. The bread was extra moist. The next time I make this recipe I will add nuts to the bread and the top. I found this recipe in Bon Appetit Magazine September 2008.

11/2 cups all purpose flour 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2 to 3 medium) 2 large eggs 1/2 vegetable oil 1/4 cup honey 1/4 cup water 21/2 tablespoons (packed) golden brown sugar
