I love coffee cakes, especially those that are cinnamony and have nuts! I also love bananas and things like banana bread. This is sort of a blend of both. It smells so good baking and right out of the oven it's to die for. This is great with a good cup of coffee for an afternoon pick me up or even for a breakfast cake! Here is what you will need for this:
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup vegetable oil or canola oil
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 medium very ripe bananas, mashed
2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup chopped pecans
2 Tbs. butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, butter, oil and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and mix after each addition. Mix in bananas and vanilla.
Sift all dry ingredients together. and add to the wet mixture. Mix well. Pour into a 9"x13" baking pan that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.
Mix the nuts with the 2 Tbs. melted butter, the sugar and the cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the cake.
Place in a 350 degree oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
Cut in squares and serve!
