Can you ever have too many recipes that use ripe bananas?
Since we regularly end up with extra bananas, I like finding ways to use them that go beyond our regular banana bread.
This Banana Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake is moist and tender.
It has a cinnamon swirl throughout the cake and is topped with a generous sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar.
So, if you're looking for a delicious new way to use up your bananas, give this cake a try!
