A Baked Gift

I have to share this recipe with you. Not only is it fabulous any time of year, but it is always a welcomed gift around here. Streusal-Topped Mini Banana Bread...did I say it was fabulous?
Makes 3 mini loaves.
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup mashed bananas {3 small overripe}
2 eggs
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, sofftened
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1. Grease three mini loaf pans. {If you happen to have the Pampered Chef 4-mini bread pan, use three of those spaces for this recipe. The disposable, mini loaf pans from the grocery are perfect size too, and a great way to wrap and go.}
2. Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in medium size bowl.
3. Beat bananas, eggs, sugar and butter in large bowl until smoth. On low speed, gradually beat in flour mixture. Divide batter among prepared pans.
4. Streusel: Mix flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon in small bowl. Cut in butter until small crumbs form. Sprinkle over batter.
5. Bake in oven 30 minutes or until inserted pick comes out clean. Cover streusel with foil if it is browning too quickly.
6. Cool breads for 10 minutes. Remove from pans to cooling racks to cool completely.
Make some for yourself. Make some and freeze. But whatever you do, just make some. Enjoy!

What temperature do you bake this at? I've read it several times and I can't see it! I'm making it right now. Thanks!
