Streusel Banana Bread

This bread is wonderful!  It is one of my very favorite recipes.  
The banana bread recipe (itself) is from Baboo (my grandmother's) recipe box.
When I got married 20 years ago, I sat at her kitchen table and wrote down my favorite recipes from her kitchen.  This was one of those that I jotted down.  I've been making this bread ever since.  Baboo loved banana bread and she made it often when I came to visit.  This is her original recipe but it's been altered with my addition of a streusel topping.  It's an amazing combination.  One that I'm sure she'd love and oh, how I wish I could share it with her today!

Bread Ingredients:
1/4 c. butter, softened
1 c. sugar
4 bananas, mashed (older bananas are best)
2 eggs
2 c. self-rising flour
1/2 tsp. vanilla flavoring

Streusel Ingredients:
1/2 c. self-rising flour
1/4 c. dark brown sugar, packed
1/4 c. butter, softened
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Cream butter and sugar.  Mix in bananas and eggs, then add flour.  
Pour into greased bread pan.
In a separate bowl, mix streusel ingredients until crumbly.  
Sprinkle streusel on top of banana bread batter.
Bake at 300 degrees for 1.5 hours.
