Banana Pecan Brunch Cake

Laurie Lenartowicz


No over-ripe banana ever gets tossed out in my kitchen! At the price of bananas today, I find a tasty way to use every one. This brunch cake is a variation of my most requested coffee cake. Instead of making the usual banana bread for a breakfast or brunch, try this recipe intead. It is light, full of banana flavor with a buttery crunchy pecan topping.
