Category: Desserts


1/2 Cup Solid Vegetable Shortening
1 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs
1 Cup Mashed Ripe Bananas
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup Sour Cream
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt

1 1/2 Cups Chopped Nuts
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350. Grease 2 (8 inch round) cake pans. Prepare streusel mixture and set aside.

In a medium bowl, beat together shortening and sugar until creamy. Beat in eggs, bananas and vanilla and fold in sour cream. In a small bowl, combine flour, soda, baking powder and salt. Fold into creamed mixture, stirring only enough to blend ingredients.

Sprinkle prepared pans with 1/3 of the streusel mixture. Carefully spread 1/2 the batter over the streusel mixture. Sprinkle with another 1/3 of the streusel mixture. Spread the remaining batter over the streusel. Sprinkle the remaining streusel mixture over the top.

Bake about 40 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes, turn out onto serving plates or wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes 2 (8-inch round) coffee cakes.
