BANANA STREUSEL CAKE – Chocolate and banana are a winning combination in this delicious cake! It has a chocolate streusel topping and filling tucked inside a buttery, tender crumb fragrant with sweet bananas.

When I think of bananas I always think of dessert. That’s where the world’s most portable fruit belongs. In all the cakes and pies.

It’s one of my favorite flavors especially when chocolate, cinnamon and walnuts are added to the equation. It’s a win-win.

The streusel is made of mini chocolate chips, walnuts, brown sugar and cinnamon. There’s a gooey ribbon of it running through the cake and a generous amount on top too.

If you’re staring down a few brown bananas then it must be fate.

  • 1 + ⅓ cups very ripe mashed banana, about 3 large

  3. In a separate bowl whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together.
  4. In another large bowl beat the sugar, butter and egg together on medium speed until light and fluffy about 3 minutes.
  5. On low speed beat in the mashed banana, buttermilk and vanilla.
  6. Add the flour mixture all at once and beat on low speed until well combined.
