Oatmeal Banana Cake

When you want an extra special banana "bread" try this! I like it better that any of my other recipes for banana bread.

Serves 8-10

4 oz. (8 T) butter at room temp.

3/4 C brown sugar

2 eggs @ room temp.

2 large very ripe bananas, mashed

1 t vanilla

zest of half a lemon

3/4 C flour

1 1/4 C oats

heaping 1/4 t salt

1 t baking soda


3/4 C oats

1/3 C brown sugar

zest of 1/2 lemon

1/2 t cinnamon

1 T flour

1/3 finely chopped pecans

4 T butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350.

Prepare a 9" spring form pan with butter and flour.

Whisk dry ingred. for topping. Add melted butter and stir with fork until crumbly. Set aside.

For cake, mix like you would for banana bread. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla, zest and banana. Mix in dry ingred. Pour into prepared pan. Spread topping on top and push down slightly. Bake 30-35 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean but moist. Let cool on rack for a few minutes. Release ring. Cut and serve warm!
