Banana Crumb Cake (Dairy Free)

I am always looking for something different to do with my very ripe bananas I didn’t get around to eating.  I wanted to make something besides the usual banana bread or muffins that I normally make.     So, I went searching for something that looked delicious.  I found it!  Dairy free banana crumb cake.

I stumbled upon and saw this delicious recipe.  Wow!  This was a home run!  What a moist, delicious cake.  I made it for a brunch my sister in law had and it was a total hit.  It was gone in a matter of ten minutes!  Everyone came back for more.

~ 2 cups flour (all purpose)

For the crumb topping…

~ 1 3/4 cup flour

~ 1/3 cup lite brown sugar
