Super Yummy Banana Crumble Cake

I know...not another recipe made with bananas! - sorry but I just have to share this one with all of you because it is SUPER yummy and full of delicious and fun ingredients.  White chocolate chips, sour cream, pecans  (or chopped nuts of your choice) and of course, ripe bananas are just a couple of mouth watering characters that come together to make this cake.  And it's not a small cake either. It feeds a crowd. It's a great cake to make to bring to a pot luck or any event that you want to share with others.

Banana Crumb Cake
(recipe from Julie's Eats & Treats...goodness this blog is a gold mine of wonderful recipes!)
2/3 cup pecans (the original recipe asked for silvered almonds)
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2/3 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
3/4 tsp vanilla extract (if you choose to use the silvered almonds you could do almond extract instead of the vanilla)
3 cups AP flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 cups mashed ripe bananas (3-4 bananas)
1 cup sour cream
1 cup vanilla or white chocolate chips (YUMMY!)
1. In small bowl, combine pecans and brown sugar for the topping.  Set bowl aside for later.
2. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.  Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Add in vanilla extract.
3. In yet another bowl combine flour, baking soda and baking powder.  Add these dry ingredients alternately with the mashed bananas and sour cream to the creamed mixture of butter/sugar/eggs/etc.
4. Fold in the vanilla chocolate chips to the batter.
5. Spread batter into a greased 9x13 pan.  Sprinkle reserved topping mixture over batter.  Pop into a preheated 350 degrees oven for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean.
Cool slightly and serve.....
