Banana Loaf Crumble

The little girl has been on a banana feeding frenzy since last week. So last Monday, I bought a bunch for her to snack on during the week. But she just didn't want to eat them after a few bites. So I had some leftovers and thought of making my first banana loaf. The husband doesn't eat banana (please don't ask me why) so I guess it'll just be me and the little girl finishing this off!

I tried looking for a recipe that has yogurt. I dunno why but I just wanted to incorporate some vanilla yogurt into the loaf :P Until I got to an article in Huffington Post. Of all places, huh?

I tried tweaking the recipe a bit - added chocolate chips and crumble on top.


  • 2 pcs eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/3 cup yogurt
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/4 cups mashed ripe bananas
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips
Crumble (optional):

  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup corn flakes (the plain ones, not sweet)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar


1. Preheat oven to 180 Celsius. Grease loaf tin and set aside.

2. In a bowl, combine the eggs, oil, yogurt, sugar, and vanilla. 

3. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and stir to just incorporate; be careful not to over-mix. Fold in mashed bananas and floured chocolate chips. Pour into greased loaf tin.

4. Mix all ingredients for crumble and sprinkle on top of banana loaf.  Bake for about 30-45 minutes or until top if golden. Check by inserting a toothpick in the center and comes out clean.

5. Let loaf cool before serving. Slice and serve with a cup of tea or coffee.
