Banana Crumb Cake

banana crumb cake

Yes the title is Banana Crumb Cake and no there is no crumb topping on mine. Something made it sink. I think it may have been my butter was too soft or the oven could be to blame. Our actual oven went out so any baking has to be done in our roaster oven which I haven’t quite figured out the timing of and where exactly to set the baking dishes. Despite the little quirks it turned out great. It is delicious. I tasted it so much that I spoiled my appetite and didn’t eat supper when it was ready. I wish I had created this cake/bread but I found it on Southern Plate.

I  have a whole slew of recipes planned for the next few weeks. I will probably post two or three a week until the middle of August and hope to go to daily posting then. We’ll see what happens. Look for basil grilled chicken on Monday for My Girl, Paula, and an Ugly Duckling Cake on Wednesday or Thursday. Have a great weekend y’all. 🙂

  1. The cake looks good. The oven might have had a problem but the cake doesn’t seem to. I think this is a good one for my husband. He loves bananas. Why not a banana cake?
