Banana Streusel Coffee Cake

Brunch is the BEST.

Seriously the best.


It’s like the Disney princess of meals – birds chirping, sun shining, cake before 10am…..pretty much best morning ever. Plus I get booze before noon and cinnamon rolls are considered a “side dish”.


Only I’m not going to lie, probably what I love most about brunch is that I DON’T make it. Sunday morning is usually a big enough struggle to draw straight eyeliner or locate my purse, so when someone else makes me coffee…pours my coffee! Prince charming.


My other favorite Skinny Cinnamon Crumb Coffee Cake!


BUT for special occasions – like Easter! I love cooking for my family and friends, it’s my turn to spoil everyone – plus I’m a big show off and my coffee cake kicks butt.


So for those of you roped into cooking Easter Brunch tomorrow, this coffee cake is really yummy, and so so quick & easy to make! Literally mix the ingredients in a bowl, smush some butter with brown sugar and cinnamon for the streusel topping – and put in the oven. Picture a smooth banana flavor with the perfect hint of warm cinnamon in the crumbly topping. Rock star.


Have a great Easter weekend everyone! Chicago weather is going to be STUNNING! Can’t wait to beat my little cousins in our Easter egg hunt.







  1. I looove that you compared brunch to a Disney princess! YES!

  4. You’re 200% right — brunch is the best! Coffee cake, cinnamon rolls, chocolate-glazed donuts, fruity turnovers, double chocolate muffins… I could go on and on! Once a month, the country club near my parents’ house serves an all-you-can-eat gourmet buffet brunch, and they always have the best sweet treats at the end, like pie and chocolate cake! If only they made your coffee cake too… Maybe next week I can bring your recipe and convince them to try it in May! ;)

  5. You can draw on straight eyeliner at any time of the day??? You’re a goddess. ;-) Pass me that cake!

  6. I was missing you and I felt like maybe my Bloglovin’ feed was broken or something, so I figured I would just hop over here an make sure! And sure enough, I’m not sure how I missed this coffee cake! Oh the streusel! It looks just as magical as a Disney princess for sure!

    You are making me want to go out for brunch right now…or maybe just whip up this cake!

  7. Disney Princess of meals! haha I love it!
