Bananas Foster Coffee Cake

Bananas Foster Coffee Cake

Bananas Foster for breakfast.

Sounds great, doesn’t it? And it is.

A soft and crumbly, but moist coffee cake flavored with bananas, rum, brown sugar, and cinnamon, topped with a pecan streusel and drizzled with rum sauce – this is not your regular old coffee cake.

When the kids are out of school for Christmas break, I put a little extra time into making breakfast foods. My husband tends to take quite a few vacation days around Christmas, so if I bake something like coffee cake or muffins, they are bound to get eaten by someone.
