Banana Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

Posted by trktos on 4-October-2010

Adapted from this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 medium bananas, plus 6 figs (recipe called for large bananas and i had figs that needed to be eaten)
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • ener-g powder for one egg
  • 3 tbsp homemade yogurt (soy milk plus vinegar would probably be fine)
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup margarine

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine walnuts, chocolate chips and cinnamon and brown sugar. Set aside.
  3. Mash bananas and figs. I pulsed in food processor. Add vanilla.
  4. Sift together dry ingredients
  5. Cream margarine and sugar.
  6. Mix ener-g powder and yogurt/buttermilk. Add to fruit.
  7. Combine fruit with creamed mix.
  8. Add flour to wet mix. Stir until just combined.
  9. Layer half of the batter in a greased, parchmented 8 x 8 baking dish. Top with half of the struesel. Top with batter and then remaining struesel.
  10. Bake for about 45 minutes.
  11. Allow to cool in pan. I’m cutting this directly from the pan. Seemed a little dangerous to try and de-pan, with all that struesel.
