Got it covered? Yep, that’s the theme this week! I covered a basic banana cake with an amazing chocolate chip streusel. I had a load of bananas to use up so this recipe uses 4. If your banana are super ripe you might want to cut back on the sugar in the cake, it’s up to you. We’re in December now so most people have pretty much thrown out those healthy thoughts.
It’s so very good. I fancied it up by making it in a cake pan, but you can go square if that’s what you are used to. I’m full into the holidays today since it’s Thanksgiving weekend and I’m just riding the wave.
The streusel is thick and full of flavour. So very easy too. The cinnamon is key, it gives the whole cake that wonderful coffee cake flavour. The cake is very dense, it’s not a light coffee cake thanks to the bananas but it’s still pretty wonderful.
