Banana Coffee Cake with Chocolate Chip Streusel Recipe #SundaySupper

Banana Coffee Cake with Chocolate Chip Streusel RecipeGot 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.

Banana Coffee Cake with Chocolate Chip Streusel Recipe-3It’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 cake is very dense, it’s not a light coffee cake thanks to the bananas but it’s still pretty wonderful.

  3. Frosting and streusel are always the best part of a cake and yours is beyond, Shannon. Very wonderful to have this recipe. My husband dances in and out of buying and eating bananas so there is always a good chance I’ll get a bunch of ripe ones =)
