Banana Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake / #SundaySupper

 I grew up on coffee cake. My favorite was a banana blueberry mix just like this Banana Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake. It was a staple in our house. But here's the thing-no one in our house drank coffee! As a little child, that was rather confusing. I knew what coffee was because my grandparents drank it, and oh, how I loved the smell!  But, I didn't like the taste, and that has never changed.  I am not a coffee drinker at all. So, when I realized that today's #SundaySupper theme was coffee, I was pretty sad about missing out on the fun. But when I realized that I could participate by making something you would enjoy with coffee, I couldn't wait to share this Banana Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake with you. Banana and blueberry are a fantastic combination, but add in the addition of the streusel topping and the blueberry drizzle, and it is way over the top! Coffee lover or not, you are going to love this moist, tasty, coffee cake!

 Banana Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake

 (makes 12-13 mini cakes)
Crumb Topping
3/4 cup Flour
1/4 cup Sugar
4 tablespoons Cold Butter
1/4 cup chopped Walnuts
1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

1 cup Flour
1/4 cup Sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground Nutmeg
1 cup fresh Blueberries
2 large Eggs
2 Bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon Vanilla 

Blueberry Drizzle
1cup Fresh Blueberries
1/2 teaspoon of Truvia
3 tablespoon Water
1/2 teaspoon Lemon Extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the flour, sugar, and butter into a bowl. Use a pastry cutter, and cut the butter into the bowl. 
As you cut through the flour mix, the butter will continue to break down. Cut into flour mix until it is the size of a pea. Take 1/2 cup of the mix and put it into a small bowl.
 Mix the walnuts and cinnamon into the small bowl, and set it aside. 
 In the bowl with the remaining flour mix, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and blueberries.
 In a separate bowl, add the eggs, the bananas, and vanilla just until combined. 
Add to the dry mixture, and stir.
Grease and flour the pan. Fill each cavity with batter, and then top with the crumb mix that you set aside.  Bake until done, approximately 8-10 minutes. Let cool, and then remove from pan.
Add the blueberries, truvia, water and lemon extract to a small pan. Bring to a slow boil. As the mix boils, begin to push down on the blueberries with a spoon to smash berries. Continue until all the berries are smashed.
Pour the smashed berries through a strainer into a small bowl, until the juice is released. 
Drizzle the blueberry sauce over the coffee cake. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar. Enjoy your coffee cake!

  1. Can you please quantify the amount of banana needed a bit more precisely? Bananas come in all sizes, and the amount of mashed banana from two small ones or two big ones could vary as much as a 100%.
