 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
 1 tsp baking soda
 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
 ½ tsp salt

For the Banana Bread
2

Melt the butter and let it cool to room temperature. Mix the cooled butter with the brown sugar in a large bowl. Mix in the egg, mashed banana and vanilla.

3

Whisk the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon together in another bowl.

4

Add the banana mixture into the flour mixture, combining well. Do not over mix.

5

Transfer the batter into the prepared skillet, smooth with top with the back of a spoon or spatula. Top with the crumble, pressing the crumble gently down into the batter with your fingers. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a wooden skewer comes out virtually crumb free. Let cool completely before slicing and serving.

For the Double-Crumble Topping

Combine the sugars, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Add the flour and stir with a rubber spatula until mostly combine. Using clean fingers, mix until everything is well combined.
