Southern comfort food at its very best in this delicious and easy to make Banana Bread Cobbler.
What does "comfort food" mean to you? It's almost impossible to define, isn't it? It really means something different to everyone.
For a southerner like me, it might mean fried chicken and cornbread. Or okra and tomatoes. Or field peas with sliced tomatoes. It really depends on the season and the reason.
Comfort food for cold weather is completely different than comfort food for the summer. And comfort food for when you're homesick is a different thing from comfort food for a heartbreak.
This comforting recipe was adapted from one of my many Southern Living cookbooks, "Comfort Food Made Easy." I've been a Southern Living fan for as long as I can remember. Their magazine is a constant presence on our coffee table and I have their annual cookbooks all the way back to 1982. Their comfort food title contains recipes that are easy, hearty, and perfect for busy cooks.
This Banana Bread Cobbler uses ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen right now and takes, at the most, 15 minutes to pull together. Pop it in the oven while you're getting the rest of your meal done and then just sit back and enjoy the compliments.
How to Make Banana Bread Cobbler
Preheat the oven to 375. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and milk until just blended. Whisk in the melted butter. Pour the batter into a lightly greased 11x7 baking dish.
Top with the banana slices.
Make the Streusel Topping
To make the streusel, in a medium bowl use a fork to stir together the brown sugar, flour, and butter until a crumbly mixture is achieved. Stir in the oats and pecans.
Sprinkle the streusel mixture over the banana slices. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
