1 1/2 C. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 C. mashed ripe bananas
1/3 C. sugar
1/4 C. brown sugar, packed
1/2 C. sour cream
1/4 C. oil
1 egg
2 tsp. vanilla extract


3/4 C. flour
1/2 C. walnuts, optional
1/2 C. melted butter
1/3 C. brown sugar
3 tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
pinch salt

1 tsp. cinnamon
3 tsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. sugar
1/2 c. powdered sugar
2-3 Tbsp. milk

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 8X8 pan.

2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and set aside.

3. In a large bowl, mash bananas (I used two small ones). Add sugar, brown sugar, sour cream, oil, egg and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.

4. Pour dry ingredients into wet and gently fold until combined, but do not over mix.

5. To make crumble topping: combine all ingredients until mixture is crumbly.

6. To make cinnamon sugar filling: combine ingredients.

7. Pour about 2/3 of the batter into the pan and gently spread out evenly. Sprinkle on all your filling mixture and then cover with the rest of the batter. Top with crumble topping by gently dropping pieces onto the batter, don't flatten or pat down.

8. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until and inserted knife comes out clean. Let cool.

9. Icing: whisk powdered sugar with 2 tablespoons of milk, if you want it thinner, add more milk! Drizzle over cooled cake and cut!
