Banana Coffee Cake with Crumb Topping

I love serving coffee cake that is made in a bundt pan! I think it elevates the dish and just creates a beautiful presentation. Most coffee cakes can be baked in a bundt pan, you just need to keep an eye on adjusting the cooking time.

Coffee Cake Ingredients

  • oil canola
  • sugar
  • eggs
  • mashed bananas, the riper the better
  • flour
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • vanilla

Making the Banana Coffee Cake

In a mixing bowl add the bananas, sugar, eggs, oil, and vanilla extract. You want to make sure you have ripe bananas, almost to the point of being over ripe, that is when they are the sweetest.

Mix the ingredients on low until combined and the mixture is mostly smooth.

For the dry ingredients you need a separate large bowl. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk them together. Then turn your mixer back on low and slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in the mixer.

How To Make The Crumb Topping

The crumb topping is what gives so much additional flavor and texture to this banana coffee cake.

In a bowl you’ll add all purpose flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Then you’ll add cold unsalted butter and “cut” in the butter until you have little pea-size crumbles of butter. This is my favorite way to make a streusel topping for pies, crisps, etc.

I used da bundt pan for my banana coffee cake. I gave the pan a generous spray of nonstick spray and then sprinkle the crumb topping into the bottom of the pan.

Then add the banana coffee cake batter on top of the crumb topping.

Then bake the banana coffee cake recipe in a preheated oven until a toothpick inserted comes out with only a little crumb on it. Then on a cooling rack for 15 minutes before flipping it onto your serving dish. Let it cool a total of 30 minutes before cutting a slice.
