Banana Coffee Cake with Chocolate Chip Streusel

While cat sitting for a friend, I realized that said friend had been very remiss in leaving 3 bananas on the counter. Since they were almost dead anyways, I took the liberty of whisking them home. Of course, once I got home, I realized that the only thing I could use them for was banana bread. However, this time I wanted to shake things up a bit.

After a bit of searching, I found this lovely looking recipe for a banana bread coffee cake with streusel. Having no mixer or whisk isn't too much of a problem, so I forged ahead. It turned out lovely and moist. Of course, I cooked it in the wrong dish, so it too much longer to cook in the middle, thus being hard to get out of the dish in one piece. As you can see.

Still, it tasted very nice. Especially with all that chocolate on top. Why not try one with your next batch of soon to be dead bananas?
