Here we are, back to my baking self. I had ripe bananas that I needed to use and I wanted something different than the muffins and cookies I have made before. I thought I would mix it up and I tried a Banana coffee cake. As I said before, I am not a great baker, so desserts or pastries I rather buy/have someone else make fore me LOL. Don’t worry I think this is going to be a recipe that is used again and again J. Take the full look at how this recipe came together on my YouTube Channel! Keep reading for the full details!
Start by preheating the oven to 350. I used parchment paper/cooking spray and flour to prep my loaf pans (1 large and 2 mini loaf pans). I did not use parchment paper in my large pan … note to self to use that next time LOL. In a small mixing bowl, I mashed 3 bananas, 2 tbsp. brown sugar, 1 ½ tsp. vanilla and ¾ tsp. cinnamon. In a larger bowl I creamed ½ cup butter, soften, with 1 cup of sugar. I then added 2 eggs.
Next, I added and sifted 2 cups flour, 1 tsp baking soda and ¼ tsp. salt. I combined together and added 2 tbsp. sour cream and mixed again. Lastly I added the mashed banana mixture. I added the batter into the loaf pans. In a small bowl, I prepped the crumb topping. I combined 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 cup flour, 1 cup brown sugar and 6tbsp. of butter. Once combined into a crumb topping I added it on top of the batter in all loaf pans. I baked for about 40-45 min. I allowed it to cool in the pans before removing them, but of course I had to give it a sample while it was still warm. A 8/10 over all! So delicious!
