Yummy banana cake!, February 7, 2006 - 10:40 AM
Reviewer: Laura L. from Woodbridge, Ontario Canada
Since my daughter has a nut allergy, I skipped the walnuts, but instead put the batter in a 13*9" pan and sprinkled streusal on top. (1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, pinch cinnamon-all crumbled together in chunks, even chocolate chips are great!). Needless to say it looked and tasted great, and no one missed the nuts at all because there was the crunch factor with the streusal. Next time I will try an angel food pan to make it look like more of a "coffee cake". Hope you try it!! Yummm
