Yield: 12 servings
For the cake
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 3¾ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • ¼ cup full fat sour cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
For the filling
  • 2 small ripe bananas, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup nutella
  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
For the streusel
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp packed light brown sugar
  • 1¼ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  1. For the streusel, melt the butter in a small pan over low heat. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together the flour, sugar, brown sugar, ginger, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Add the melted butter into the flour mixture and mix until it is well combined and clumps start to form. Set aside while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  3. For the cake, heat the oven to 350F and grease a 9x13-inch baking pan with baking spray. Set aside.
  4. Melt the butter in a small pan over low heat. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  5. Meanwhile, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl.
  6. In a separate large bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, sour cream, vanilla, and melted butter until well combined.
  7. Pour the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients and mix with a spatula until just combined.
  8. Pour half of the batter into the prepared baking pan, smoothing it into an even layer as best as possible. Spread the banana slices over the batter in an even layer, overlapping the slices as necessary. Melt the nutella for about 15 seconds in the microwave and then drizzle it over the top of the bananas. Sprinkle with the brown sugar.
  9. Pour the remaining batter over the filling and smooth it into an even layer that covers the whole pan.
  10. Sprinkle with the streusel and bake for 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool to room temperature before serving.
