Banana Crumb Cake

Guess what? We loved this Banana Crumb Cake.  It was moist, banana-y, and delightful! Cade said, “What are you making?” I told him banana cake. He replied, “Oh, dangit. Nothing good.” You see Cade doesn’t like cake. I told him it was going to be fantastic. Every time he doesn’t get excited about something it seems to end up fantastic. This was the case with this cake. I served up a slice to him, he took it and after a few minutes began to finally eat it (we were playing a game so it’s not like he was just sitting there) Anyway, I turned to look at him and he goes, “this *pause* is *pause* awesome!” TOLD YA. 😉

Are Bananas Good For You?

Bananas are a good source of healthy nutrients.

Bananas are high in potassium and contain good levels of protein and dietary fiber.

Can Bananas Be Frozen?

You can slice bananas and freeze to be used in smoothies or even to be eaten as a frozen snack.

You can also mash bananas and freeze in airtight containers or freezer bags to be used later in cakes, cookies or breads.

How Do You Keep Bananas From Ripening Too Quickly?

Once bananas have reached desired ripeness, you can place them in the refrigerator.

The peel will turn black, but the banana will maintain its perfect ripeness for a longer period of time.

You can also wrap the stems of bananas in plastic wrap to slow the ripening process.

  • Step 1 conflicts with step 4. Was this originally two loaves? If yes, then for do you mean fill with half of the batter, then half of the crumb?
