Wait until you try a bite of this banana cake recipe! It’s loaded with banana flavor and has the best extra thick layer of streusel on top!
I feel like I’m about to break some serious rules right now.
I’m sharing a banana recipe. In October.
I mean, you guys. This is PUMPKIN EVERYTHING season and here I sit. With a bunch of bananas.
So, if you really can’t handle this, go ahead and skip on over to my pumpkin coffee cake. It’s fine. I get it. That cake is one of the best, so I won’t complain.
Buttttt, if you’re just the tiniest bit tired of pumpkin and are maybe looking for something a little different, but still totally perfect for this time of year – I present you with this banana cake recipe.
This banana coffee cake has a nice thick layer of streusel on top, because who cares if there is cake, just give me the streusel. 😉
My kids fought me for this one, you guys. I had to double wrap it in plastic wrap and threaten them with bodily harm or they totally would have ate the whole cake in one sitting. Then there was me…trying to sneak a piece of streusel off the top every time I went into the kitchen. Which was nearly impossible because I had double wrapped the cake to keep myself from doing just that very thing. I know me so well sometimes. Dang it.
This banana cake recipe packs in as many bananas as possible!
Anyway! We all need an easy coffee cake recipe in our lives and this banana coffee cake is it! Trust me on that.
Please note that this is definitely not a light and airy sort of cake. This is more dense because I packed in as much banana as possible. If you’re having banana cake, then have some dang banana cake. 😉
I topped this off with a super simple vanilla glaze, but it isn’t totally necessary. It makes things pretty and fancy, but the cake is just as delicious without, so you do you.
