An inviting breakfast or afternoon snack. Is it breakfast or dessert? The answer is both!

Banana Bread Coffee Cake. Your favorite banana bread is made into a coffee cake style treat.

I always thought my coconut obsession was more than my banana obsession but after review, all the recipes on this blog Banana wins! You have probably heard me say, “Give me a banana and I will make dessert”, several times across social media.

Bananas are on the weekly grocery list. No banana gets wasted. If it is not just eaten as is, it is in a smoothie or some baked good.

Funny, on this blog I have yet just to have a traditional banana bread recipe. I will get on that next week. In the meantime enjoy my Banana Flips or Banana Bread Pudding.

Coffee! I have one cup in the morning and one cup in the afternoon and this banana coffee cake goes great with a cup.

The Baking Pan I used:

This banana bread coffee cake is baked in a 9×9 square baking pan and cut the cake is cut into 9 equal pieces.

If I don’t share that is 4 1/2 days of delicious noshing. However, I have to share. It is the right thing to do. Or is it????

Some may say that I got carried away with the streusel topping. Some may say it is the perfect amount. When you are layering it on using your own judgment. In some people’s opinion, less is more. (Not mine).

Anyway, my coffee is getting cold so here is the recipe.

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 medium bananas, mashed
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt

For the Streusel:

  • 1/3 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose unbleached flour

For the icing

  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/4 cup confectioners sugar.


For the Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. In a stand mixer mix together butter, brown sugar, vanilla, milk, eggs, and bananas.
  3. In a separate bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Pour flour mixture into the stand mixer and mix until well combined.
  5. Butter and dust with flour a 9x9 baking pan.
  6. Pour cake batter into the pan and top with streusel.
  7. Bake for 35-40 minutes.

For the Streusel Topping

  1. In a mixing bowl using a fork combine both sugars, cinnamon salt, and butter.
  2. Slowly add in flour and use continue to combine using the fork in a cutting action. This will give you that crumbly topping.

For the Icing

  1. In a small saucepan over low heat combine milk and sugar with a whisk.
  2. Continue to whisk until it turns into a nice glaze.
  3. You may add more milk to thin the icing's consistency.

I suggest making the Streusel Topping first. Next, make the cake. While the cake is baking make the icing.

Does the strusel topping really need 1 and 1/4 cups of flour? Seems like too much flour. I guess I will have to see how it turns out.

Delicious! I followed the instructions as written and it was very easy to follow. Not sure why others thought it was vague. Just what I needed a smaller version of a great coffee cake.

Agree with the above. Completely wasted my ripe bananas by following the recipe.

Absolutely terrible directions. Doesn't tell you whether to cook the strudel on top of the wet ingredients or add it later. All is says is to mix first 6 ingredients together.....doing that makes it an inconsistent lumpy mess.
