Recipe: Spiced Banana Coffee Cake with Crumbs

Summary: An addictive spiced, crumb-topped banana coffee cake is a big hit!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature (add 1/4 tsp. salt if using unsalted butter)
  • 1 cup (2-3 small) thinly sliced overripe bananas (to see what they should look like, go here) [1]
  • 1/3-1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (low-fat version works fine)
  • 1 egg

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine first four ingredients (flour through butter) and mix at low speed until crumbly.
  3. Press 1 1/2 cups crumb mixture into an ungreased 13- by 9-inch baking dish. Measure out another 1/2 cup crumbs and set aside.
  4. Combine remaining crumbs in mixing bowl with remaining ingredients. Beat 30-60 seconds at medium speed until well blended (this will mash the bananas). Pour evenly over crumb crust. Sprinkle with reserved 1/2 cup crumbs.
  5. Bake 30-35 minutes, until golden brown.
  6. Cool, cut into 40-48 small bars if serving as bar cookies, or 16 squares if serving as a plated dessert.
