Banana Crumb Snack Cake


2/3 C. Slivered Almonds
1/4 C. Packed Brown Sugar
2/3 C. Butter, softened
1 1/2 C. Sugar
2 Eggs
3/4 tsp Almond Extract
3 C. All-Purpose Flour
2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
2 C. Mashed Ripe Bananas (3-4 Bananas)
1 C. (8 oz) Sour Cream
1 C. Vanilla or White Chips

1. In a small bowl, combine almonds and brown sugar; set aside (I ommitted slivered almonds for Jason but I have used them and they are awesome on this cake!).

2. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in extract.
3. Combine flour, baking soda and baking powder; add to the creamed mixture alternately with bananas and sour cream. Fold in vanilla or white chips.

4. Spread into a greased 13x9x2 in baking pan. Sprinkle with reserved almond mixture.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
