Bananas Foster Coffee Cake

Banana bread is one of those classic southern staples & every good cook covets their recipe. Ideal for breakfast, entertaining or a late night snack, it’s usually prepared when several bananas have ripened too much which is indicated by the splotchy dark spots that cover the surface of the peel. Bananas Foster Coffee Cake starts with a baseline recipe but takes on a lovely flavor with warm spice baked into the loaves. Once cool, a Buttermilk Praline Glaze is drizzled over the top & Cinnamon-Sugar Buttered Pecans are pressed into the surface before it sets. Learn how to make an exceptional variation on a beloved favorite.

Southern Recipes Rebecca Gordon Tailgates Buttermilk LipstickBananas Foster Coffee Cake
makes 2 loaves

1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
3 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla extract or dark rum
2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp table salt
1 1/2 cups very ripe mashed banana
1 cup whole buttermilk
Buttermilk Praline Glaze
Cinnamon-Sugar Buttered Pecans

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease & flour 2 {9-x 5-inch} loaf pans. Set aside. Cream the butter & the sugar with an electric stand mixer until light & airy, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the eggs & mix just until the yellow disappears. Blend in the vanilla or the rum. Mix on Low speed until combined. Whisk together the flour, the baking soda, the cinnamon & the salt in a small bowl. Add to the butter mixture alternately with the bananas & the buttermilk beginning & ending with the flour mixture. Portion the batter between the pans & spread it to the edges. Drop them onto the counter top several times to settle the leavening for an even rise. Bake 1 hour to 1 hour & 10 minutes or until a wooden pick tests clean & the cakes pull away from the pan sides. Let stand 10 minutes & remove from pans. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Prepare the Buttermilk Praline Glaze as directed. Working quickly, drizzle the glaze over the cakes. Gently press the Cinnamon-Sugar Buttered Pecans over each cake. Let stand 1 hour or until the glaze sets before slicing with a serrated knife.
