I found this online and made it with 3 very overripe bananas. Brought it to the office and got lots of great feedback! Kept one of them at home! From Shugarysweets.com

How To Make banana streusel coffee cake with maple glaze

  • 1
    For the cake, beat butter with sugar for 3 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla, beat until combined. Add bananas and beat until mashed (I toss mine in whole, but you can mash them first if you prefer). Add flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt until combined. Beat in nuts and skim milk. Pour batter into two 9inch round cake pans that have been greased generously.

    For the streusel In a small bowl, mix streusel topping ingredients together. I use my hands to break up the butter and mix it with the other ingredients. Mix until it forms crumbs. Divide topping evenly between the two cakes, sprinkling on the top. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. (check at 20 min.) Remove and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pans and cool on rack completely before adding glaze.

    For the glaze, beat powdered sugar with maple syrup until desired consistency. Drizzle over cakes.
