Ingredients

CAKE INGREDIENTS:

2 c
flour
1 Tbsp
baking powder
1 tsp
salt
3
ripe bananas
1/2 c
butter, softened (1 stick)
2 c
granulated sugar
2
eggs
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 c
sour milk (1 tbsp. vinegar in measuring cup, add enough milk to make 1 cup)

CRUMB TOPPING:

1/2 c
butter, cold and cubed
1 c
light brown sugar
1 c
flour

CHOCOLATE GLAZE:

1 c
confectioners' sugar
3 Tbsp
unsweetened cocoa
3 Tbsp
milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350'F. Spray a 9x13" baking pan with cooking spray; set aside.
2
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
3
In a large bowl, mash bananas until they become liquefied. Add softened butter, and combine well; stir in sugar, eggs & vanilla. Mix well.
4
Add milk and flour mixture; stir until blended. Set aside and make the Crumb Topping.
5
Stir the brown sugar and flour together, cut in the cubed butter with a fork or pastry cutter, until a coarse crumb forms and will hold together when you press it in your hand. This takes a few minutes, but totally worth getting the topping blended well.
6
(Use this as a filler too, if you like a crunch in the middle of your cake. Just pour half the batter into the prepared pan. Top with 1/3 of the crumb mixture. Pour the remaining batter over the crumb mixture and top that with the rest of the crumbs, or just sprinkle all over the top, and bake.)
7
Bake at 350'F. for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes.
8
Stir the confectioners' sugar and cocoa together, then add milk. Use a whisk to blend, so there won't be any lumps.
9
Drizzle glaze over top, and serve warm or cold! Store in an airtight container.
