Banana Bread Cobbler
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 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 11×7 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.

Mullet and cheese grits.
Gumbo! Moms homemade chicken noodle soup!
My comfort food since the late 1940’s — green beans slowly simmered with bacon and a side of crispy-edged cornbread (baked in a cast iron skillet, of course). Although my Mom, Grandma, and the two favorite aunts are no longer here to cook it for me, they taught me how to make it. So I’m always surrounded by family when I’m cooking me some green beans.
Grilled cheese or perhaps mac & cheese if I was out of bread, haha!
I like fried chicken.

My comfort food is chicken , peas and buttery rice! I have it when I am sick, sad or just want to be at home. It was always served to us by my mom and my daughter loves it too!
My favorite comfort food is fluffy, buttery mashed potatoes! No gravy, thank you, just plenty of black pepper and a touch of sea salt!
Chicken and dumplings and banana pudding are great comfort foods. My husband loves banana pudding and he is excited about me trying the cobbler recipe this weekend. Thanks for great recipes and ideas..
