Banana Spice Coffee Cake


Today’s bit of wonderfulness  is brought to you by my kitchen!

Whenever I find myself with very ripe bananas I usually make a banana nut bread. A couple of weeks ago I came across a recipe for this Banana Spice Coffee Cake and have been waiting for a chance to make it. Today was the day.

Not only is this a very easy recipe to make but according to my hubby, “This is great!” High praise indeed!

The recipe calls for the cake to be baked in a tube pan because the spicy brown sugar and butter topping is sprinkled in between as well as on top. (see photo, right)

I happen to have a tube pan but if I did not, I would have poured the batter into a 9 x 13″ pan and sprinkled the entire brown sugar mixture on top. And I’m sure it would be just as good!

Oh, the recipe also calls for the bananas to be pureed in a blender or food processor, but I just mashed them in a shallow bowl with a fork as I usually do.

You can find the recipe here. Enjoy!
