Banana Bread Cobbler

These were sitting on the counter.

Tawny wanted me to make Banana Pudding Pie but I didn't have any heavy cream.

My friend CaSeYmOm had posted about Banana Bread Cobbler that she'd made and how good it was. Then everyone started making it and posting about how good it was. I decided that would be the perfect use for my very ripe bananas. CaSeYmOm found this recipe in the Better Homes and Gardens 9x13 The Pan That Can cookbook, page 378.

Banana Bread Cobbler
1 cup self rising flour
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 medium bananas, peeled and sliced
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup self rising flour
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream

1. Grease a 13x9 baking pan or baking dish;set aside. Preheat oven to 375F.

2. In a medium bowl stir together the 1 cup self rising flour and the granulated sugar;add milk, melted butter and vanilla. Stir until smooth. Spread evenly in the prepared pan or dish. Top with sliced bananas.

3. In a large bowl combine oats, brown sugar and the 1/2 cup self rising flour. Using a pastry blender, cut in 1/2 cup butter until crumbly. Stir in walnuts. Sprinkle mixture over bananas. Bake uncovered, for 25-30 minutes or until browned and set. Cool in pan or dish on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Makes 12 to 18 servings.


Mix up the 1 cup self rising flour, granulated sugar, melted butter, milk & vanilla.


Pour that into the greased 9x13 pan.

Top with sliced bananas.

Combine oats, brown sugar, 1/2 cup self rising flour, walnuts, cut in 1/2 cup butter, until crumbly.


Sprinkle evenly over sliced bananas.

Bake at 375F for 30 minutes or until browned & set.

Cool 30 minutes, top with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy!

Everyone LOVED this! My husband almost never eats bananas, but tried and loved this. Ryan wasn't sure if he'd like it, so he requested a small piece, but he loved it too! Tawny & Lilly loved it! Bob isn't a fan of this kinda thing so he just passed on it. I thought it was awesome! This is so fast and easy and it's a nice alternative to banana bread for those ripe bananas!

Actually, I think I might try the oat topping from this on my next banana bread! Stay tuned!

That's pretty frickin' brilliant, actually! I like the idea of using that topping on banana bread, too. YUM. I have some ripe bananas. Sounds like a plan... ;)
