  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray two 8x4-inch loaf pans with nonstick spray containing flour. Set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together 2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. With the mixer running on low, alternate adding flour mixture and buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
  5. Evenly divide batter between prepared loaf pans.
  6. Make the crumb topping by mixing together the flour and sugar and stirring in the melted butter until mixture is crumbly. Set aside.

  8. Bake in preheated oven for 60-75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of each loaf comes out clean.
  9. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack before removing from pans.
