Banana Streusel Coffee Cake!

 
 
This is a super moist and yummy coffee cake that is perfect for breakfast or brunch or for a snack with a good cup of coffee.   I like cakes like this at times because they are not overly sweet or heavy.   Here is what you need:
 
Streusel
 
1/2 cup chopped pecans (could use walnuts)
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
 
Cake
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 (3.4 oz.) pkg. vanilla instant pudding mix (could substitute banana flavored for more banana flavor)
4 large eggs
1 cup mashed bananas
1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla
 
Glaze
2 cups confectioner's sugar
5 Tbs. milk or half and half
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.   Spray a 10 inch Bundt pan or a tube pan with nonstick baking spray.

In a bowl, combine the pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg for the streusel.

In a mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, dry pudding mix, eggs bananas, oil, water, and vanilla.  Beat for 2 minutes with an electric mixer on medium speed.   Pour half of batter in pan.  Sprinkle evenly with the streusel.   Pour the rest of the batter over all.   With a knife swirl the batter in a figure eight all around the pan, just to lightly mix the streusel into the batter. 

Place in preheated oven and bake for 55 to 60 minutes or when a pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool in pan for 30 minutes.  Invert onto cake plate. 

When the cake is cooled, prepare the glaze by combining the confectioner's sugar, milk or half and half and vanilla until smooth.  Drizzle over the top of the cake and allow to run down the sides.

Slice and serve!  Yummy!
