Cinnamon Crumb Banana Bread

I love banana bread, and crumb cake, well this is my dream because it is actually the combination of the two, moist banana bread topped with a thick layer of crumbs with the hint of cinnamon..which is the best part I buy a lot of bananas and when I see them starting to go brown, I actually look forward to it, because I know I can make banana bread, muffins, or cake.. Try it, you will love it!!
