Crumb filling and topping

  • ¾ cup butter cold
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon I used Spouts brand
  • 1 ½ cups chopped walnuts I used California Walnuts, available at Sprouts


  • 2 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • ½ cup butter room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla I used Sprouts brand
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ¼ cup sour cream


Prepare crumb filling/topping

  • Cut cold butter into small cubes and set aside.
  • In a medium sized bowl add brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Then add chopped butter and use a pastry blender or a fork to combine all ingredients until coarse crumbs form.  Add chopped walnuts and stir to combine.  Set aside crumb mixture while you prepare the cake batter.

Prepare cake batter

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Lightly butter, then dust with flour a 9”x13” baking dish (or spray with cooking spray).
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl (or the bowl of an electric mixer), beat butter until smooth. Add sugar and continue to blend.  Add very ripe bananas and blend until well combined.
  • While mixing, add eggs, then vanilla, milk and sour cream.
  • Add flour mixer and stir until just combined.
  • Pour ½ of the cake batter into the prepared pan, and then add a layer of the crumb topping (using a bit less than half of the crumb topping).
  • Pour the additional cake batter on top (using an offset spatula to spread as needed), then top with the remaining crumb topping.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 50-55 minutes.
