How to make Banana Crumb Cake with Pecans and Chocolate Chips for your next brunch or Sunday morning breakfast!
Anytime I bake it’s a wonderful thing, but there’s something special about baking something special for the morning……sigh, especially when it’s a lazy Sunday morning! What could be better than the aroma of freshly baked pastries, muffins or cakes, warm from the oven with a good strong cup of coffee or espresso? Now that’s livin’ my friends!
It never seems to matter how many bananas I buy, at the end of the week I always have a few leftover, and trying to find new ways to use them isn’t always easy. As I began to pull ingredients from the cupboard I decided to add a twist to my go-to muffin recipe.
I thought pecans and chocolate chips would make a nice addition to the banana deliciousness.
I as I got the chocolate chips out of my pantry, I decided this project was too grand for just muffins, and that I needed to make a breakfast cake ( don’t those words just go together so well, breakfast and cake….sigh). I couldn’t very well use frosting on a breakfast cake, so I did the next best thing and added a crumb topping……
It was glorious!! So moist, and so delicious! The banana didn’t overpower the flavors and the added pecans and chocolate chips made every bite a delight! Of course Lisa enjoyed it as well, but she has self-restraint, unfortunately, I do not…..sigh. I enjoyed two large slices with a cup of strong black coffee. Now that’s the way to start the morning!
