My husband and I could never seem to finish our bananas before it becomes overripe. But the minute I use them to make this easy and lazy Banana Coffee Cake, it’s gone in a flash! The texture might not come out as similar to the traditional banana bread, though if you don’t really mind that, then this is perfect for you! I generally use overripe bananas in baking as they have a sweeter flavor and also results in moist cakes.
Essentially, Banana Coffee Cake is banana bread topped with a crumbly layer of sugar. In this case, it’s sugar and sliced bananas. Although you don’t really need to use coffee in coffee cakes (I know, it can be really confusing), it helps in enhancing the cake flavor. And this coffee concentrate from Javy Coffee complements the bananas really well!
Once you put this baby in the oven to bake, the scent that rushes through the air can make you salivate. The bananas, the butter, the sugar – simply delicious! I hope you’ll give this a try!
