1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups mashed ripe banana (about 2)
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large egg
1/3 cup chopped dates
Cooking spray
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon chilled butter or stick margarine, cut into small pieces


Preheat oven to 350°.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, soda, and salt in a bowl. Place banana and next 3 ingredients in a bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until blended. Add flour mixture; stir just until moist. Stir in dates. Pour batter into an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray.

Combine brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle evenly over batter.

Bake at 350° for 50 to 55 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes; remove from pan, and cool completely.
