Banana Cake with Pecan-Crumb Topping

A few weeks ago a friend gave me some bananas and I made this Banana Bread with dark chocolate chips. Well, two days ago he sent more bananas, lots more(like 46 of them). I made another batch of banana bread and this one - Banana Cake with Pecan Crumb Topping.

I gave as many away as I could. We don't eat that many sweets, but I like the bananas. My neighbors were excited to get them, so all was good.

This cake is very moist and the pecan topping was really good. I sent lots of them into work with my husband and he said I thought they were going to lick the container. lol!

Other nuts would work well too, but I had lots of pecans and like how they taste.
