The other day I made this scrumptious banana coffee cake with chocolate chip streusel and do you know what my husband said about it? HE TOLD ME I SHOULD SELL THE STUFF. Sell it. For money. Because it's just that good. This is quite possibly the nicest thing my husband has ever said about my food before.
