Banana Crumb Cake Recipe

    Ingredients:

    For the Cake:

    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 3 ripe bananas, mashed

    For the Crumb Topping:

    • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    Optional Glaze:

    • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
    • 1-2 tablespoons milk
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Instructions:

    Preheat the Oven:

    Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking dish.

    Prepare the Crumb Topping:

    In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, melted butter, and ground cinnamon. Mix until crumbly. Set aside.

    Make the Cake Batter:

    In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

    In a separate large bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

    Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

    Stir in the vanilla extract and mashed bananas.

    Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.

    Assemble the Cake:

    Pour the banana cake batter into the prepared baking dish, spreading it evenly. Sprinkle the crumb topping over the batter, covering it completely.

    Bake:

    Bake in the preheated oven for about 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The crumb topping should be golden brown.

    Optional Glaze:

    If desired, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract to make a glaze. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cake.

    Cool and Serve:

    Allow the cake to cool in the baking dish on a wire rack. Once completely cooled, cut into squares and serve.
