If you love banana bread and a good coffee cake, you'll appreciate this sweet delight.

I had some overripe bananas needing to be used but had a serious craving for coffee cake. While browsing the internet for some form of crumble topped banana bread, I found this by Little Bits of Real Food. I modified the original recipe by adding a third banana. I had three bananas needing to be used, so I used them.


  • 1 egg

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1/2 cup buttermilk

  • 2 (mashed) overripe bananas

  • 2 cups all purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Crumb Topping:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • pinch of salt


1. In a large bowl (paddle stand mixer preferred), mix sugar, egg and vanilla until combined. Add butter and beat until smooth and butter is fully incorporated. Add buttermilk and bananas.

2. In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. Slowly stir dry ingredients into the wet until all the flour is incorporated. Line loaf pan (or spray/butter). Pour batter.

3. Make crumb topping by combining powdered sugar, flour, cinnamon salt and melted butter. Using hands, crumble the mixture over the batter in the pan. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 50 – 60 minutes (until a toothpick comes out clean).
