Banana Coffee Cake

I was going to to make a crumb cake, but I ran out of brown sugar! So lets call this a coffee cake!

Banana Coffee Cake

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup Vanilla Olive Oil
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
3 tbsp Honey
3 mashed bananas
2 eggs
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, optional
2 tbsp White Coconut Balsamic, for glazing

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9x9 pan and set aside.

Sift the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Whisk the wet ingredients together in a separate bowl. Slowly stir the dry into the wet. It doesn't have to be well beaten, just stir it all together until there are no more dry lumps.

Pour into the pan. Use a spoon to spread the batter and make sure that everything is level. Bake for 40-50 minutes. A skewer inserted in the center should come out clean.

Let cool for at least 10 minutes before you brush on the Coconut Balsamic.

If you have extra brown sugar laying around, you can turn this into a crumb cake easily. Just take 1/4 cup of flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 tbsp Vanilla Olive Oil and mix them together until the mixture resembles crumbs. Distribute the crumb topping over the cake before you bake it and then drizzle the Coconut Balsamic over everything after it cools. Have fun!
