This super moist banana coffee cake is topped with a layer of crunchy streusel and drizzled in a homemade salted caramel sauce.



Banana Cake

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup 2% greek yogurt
  • 1 whole egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas, about 2 medium bananas
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter, cold and cubed

Caramel Sauce (half the recipe)


  1. Preheat your oven the 350F and grease and line an 8×8 baking pan.
  2. Start by making the crumble. In a small bowl, throw in all the ingredients. Use your hands to crumble everything together. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients for the banana cake (flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon). Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the sugars and oil. You can use a hand mixer, stand mixer, or just a whisk. Once fully combined, whisk in the greek yogurt and eggs, then the mashed bananas and vanilla.
  5. Fold in the dry ingredients in two batches.
  6. Evenly spread the batter into your prepared pan and top with the crumble. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let it cool at room temperature before taking out of the pan.
  7. While they cool, make half of my caramel sauce recipe. Pour into a glass container and let it sit out to cool down.
  8. Drizzle the caramel all over the top of the banana coffee cake and slice. They’re best when served warm. Enjoy!
