I’m sharing a VERY special recipe with you all.

Why is it special?

Well, to start it’s amazingly moist. It’s filled with banana flavor. And it’s topped with one of my FAVORITE things!


But there’s something even more special about this recipe than the fact is TOTALLY scrumptious!

The original recipe for this yummy Banana Streusel Coffee Cake was given to me years ago by an AMAZING woman who was not only my first employer but a mentor who had such a profound effect on my life.

Alta was one of those- one in a million- kind of women. Beautiful inside and out. Full of love. Life. And laughter.

Everyone who met her loved her.
