I blend the Buttermilk and Bananas until well blended
Whisk your dry ingredients
Cream the butter and sugars until creamy mix eggs one at a time, add vanilla and coconut
Add Banana Buttermilk Mixture blend and add Flour mixture 1/2 cup at a time

Bake at 350 40-45 minutes

Your choice if you want to make a crumb topping as I did:

1/3 Cup Sugar
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter (melted and still warm)
1 3/4  oz cake flour

Whisk all the dry ingredients and stir with wooden spoon into butter it will be a cohesive dough .
I roll into a ball and let it cool while you are making the Banana Bread Dough.

Please Banana Bread mix into prepared pan and then crumble the topping all around
and bake as indicated above.
