  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup chopped cashews, can sub in walnuts, pecans, etc.
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 medium overripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup beer, I used Abita's Pecan Harvest Ale - an amber lager

Crumbled Top

  • 3 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of melted butter


  • Preheat oven to 350° F with oven rack positioned in the middle.
  • Lightly grease a bread pan with butter to ensure the bread doesn't stick.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  • In a different bowl, whisk the eggs until they are frothy.
  • To the eggs, add the mashed bananas, melted butter, and finally, the beer.
  • Mix well so there are no large chunks of banana left behind.
  • Add the wet mix to the dry mix and stir well to combine, but don't over-mix.
  • Fold in the cashews with a spatula; scrape the mixture into the greased bread pan.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the ingredients for the crumbled topping.
  • Evenly sprinkle the crumbled topping over the top of the bread mixture.
  • Bake for approx. 40-45 minutes.
  • Once done, allow to cool for approx. 30 minutes before taking it out of he bread pan.
  • Once cooled, the bread should slide right out of the pan.
