Prepare crumb filling/topping

  2. Lightly butter, then dust with flour a 9×13 baking dish (or spray with cooking spray).
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl (or the bowl of an electric mixer), beat butter until smooth. Add sugar and continue to blend. Add very ripe bananas and blend until well combined.
  5. While mixing, add eggs, then vanilla, milk and sour cream.
  6. Add flour to mixer and stir until just combined.
  7. Pour ½ of the cake batter into the prepared pan, and then add a layer of the crumb topping (using a bit less than half of the crumb topping).

  9. Sprinkle the remaining crumb topping over the cake batter.
  10. Bake in preheated oven for 50-55 minutes.
