I made this recipe today. I had a feeling something was off with the quantities in the crumb topping (WAY too much flour, etc) but I followed the recipe to the letter. The cake was great. The crumb topping was a disaster, very mealy and dry. I think I will reduce the crumb ingredients to 1/3 of what is listed.

This is a GREAT snack cake !! I loved that it had a VERY nice crumb topping, not too sweet cake, and was so easy to make !!! A simple recipe, that bakes up to be so elegant. Perfect to serve with coffee, tea, or just plain ol' milk !!

This is a marvelous cake! It's easy to make, since you don't have to cream any butter. It's moist, sweet but not saccharin, and has the most wonderful crumb topping. I halved the topping, as two cups of flour sounded like alot, and I added 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Great way to use bananas that isn't just bread!
