Honey Banana Coffee Cake

This Honey Banana Coffee Cake is a great alternative to banana bread and is perfect for breakfast, lunch or snacking. Honey Banana Coffee Cake from What The Fork Food Blog | @WhatTheForkBlog | whattheforkfoodblog.comHoney is usually my go-to sweetener for things like smoothies and I’ve even used it in my baked Chocolate Chip Donuts. I’ve always been a big fan of honey, I get it from my grandfather who has honey on his cereal every morning. When I was a kid, I told him honey was what made him such a sweet old man. He still reminds me of that every time honey comes up in conversation ♥ When I heard about Tate+Lyle Honey Granules, I knew I had to give it a try! I really wanted to see how it held up in baking since sometimes using real honey can mess up the liquid to dry ingredient ratio a little bit. Replacing sugar with honey takes a bit of the ‘bulk’ out of the batter. But I thought the Tate+Lyle Honey Granules would be more great honey replacement without affecting that ratio. Honey Banana Coffee Cake from What The Fork Food Blog | @WhatTheForkBlog | whattheforkfoodblog.com I decided to give it a whirl on a coffee cake because, go big or go home, right? Well guess what. Actually, you probably know what the end result was since you’re here reading my post titled “Honey Banana Coffee Cake”. Let’s just pretend you’re surprised and let’s start over. Honey Banana Coffee Cake from What The Fork Food Blog | @WhatTheForkBlog | whattheforkfoodblog.com Guess what?! It works! And it tastes so good 🙂 Honey granules can also be used in tea, over cereals or when cooking. Basically, wherever you’d use honey you can use the granules instead. You can also replace it for some of the sugar in baked goods like I did with this honey banana coffee cake. When subbing the honey granules in for fluid honey, 1 cup liquid honey = 1 cup Tate+Lyle® Honey Granules + ¼ cup additional liquid to recipe. You guys can have so much fun experimenting with this product.

Honey Banana Coffee Cake

Honey Banana Coffee Cake

Yield: serves 12
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes

This Honey Banana Coffee Cake is a great alternative to banana bread and is perfect for breakfast, lunch or snacking.

Ingredients

For the Streusel:

  • 1 C walnuts, chopped
  • 1/4 C Tate+Lyle Honey Granules
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp gluten free all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp vegan butter, melted*

For the Cake:

  • 3 C gluten free all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 1/2 tsp tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/2 C vegan butter, softened*
  • 3/4 C Tate+Lyle Honey Granules
  • 1/2 C light brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 C mashed banana
  • 1 C dairy free sour cream*, room temperature

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a tube pan with non-stick spray.
  2. In a small bowl combine the walnuts, 1/4 C honey granules, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 Tbsp flour, and the 2 Tbsp melted vegan butter. Mix well and set aside.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, sift and whisk together the 3 C flour, xanthan gum, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter, 3/4 C honey granules and brown sugar. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.
  5. Mix in the vanilla, banana, and sour cream until well combined. Mix in half the flour mixture and beat until just incorporated. Scrape down the bowl and add the remaining flour mixture and mix until combined.
  6. Pour one third of the streusel mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan, spreading evenly. Pour half the batter on top and smooth it out so it forms an even layer. Sprinkle the remaining streusel evenly over the batter. Then add the remaining half of the batter, spreading it evenly in the pan.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.

Notes

* To make this with dairy products, use real butter and real sour cream.

I prefer using soy free vegan butter.
