Sour Cream Banana Coffee Cake- This tender coffee cake has a subtle banana flavor, and is filled with a layer of chocolate, cinnamon, and nuts. The crunchy topping makes it extra special!

When I end up with a bunch of overripe bananas, I love whipping up recipes like Banana Muffins, Buttermilk Banana Bread, and even Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies. This coffee cake is a special morning treat I’m adding to the rotation.

Winters in Utah are CHILLY, so when I have time (AKA Saturdays), I like to warm up the house in the morning by baking up a yummy coffee cake. We had some over-ripe bananas, so I decided to whip up a batch of this sour cream banana coffee cake.

I’m not always a fan of chocolate and banana together, but in this recipe it was perfect! I can’t tell you how much my family raved about this yummy coffee cake!

This Banana Coffee cake with chocolate chips and nuts

You sprinkle chocolate chips and nuts in the bottom of the Bundt pan, and it bakes into such a delicious topping. Doesn’t  just make you want to rip off a piece and shove it in your mouth? Seriously so good! Paired with scrambled eggs and a fruit smoothie, it is a perfect breakfast that keeps my boys full all morning for at least an hour.
