Banana Bread Crumb Cake

Due to an excessive amount of “senior” bananas in the fruit bowl, I made this Banana Bread Crumb Cake. Makes getting out of bed on a Monday morning a little easier! 

  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup milk

Crumb filling and topping

  • 1 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 2 cups flour


  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk
  1. Preheat oven to 350º, spray a 9″ x 13″ baking dish with cooking spray, set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together, set aside.
  3. Mash the bananas in a large bowl, mix in butter, then add sugar, eggs, vanilla, and milk. Stir in the flour mixture until well combined.
  4. Make the crumb filling/topping by combining the butter, brown sugar, and flour in a bowl, cutting them together with a fork. I cheated and pulsed them in a food processor.
  5. Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan, sprinkle with 1/3 of the crumb topping. Cover filling with remaining batter, then top with crumb mixture.
  6. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, test with a toothpick. Let cool for an hour and drizzle with glaze.
