Banana Espresso Coffee Cake with Chocolate Chips


  1. 6 very ripe bananas, mashed
  2. 1 cup sugar
  3. 1/2 cup brown sugar
  4. 2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
  5. 1/2 cup whole milk
  6. 2 eggs
  7. 3 cup flour
  8. 3 tsp instant espresso powder
  9. 3 tsp baking soda
  10. 2 tsp  salt
  11. 2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

For glaze

  1. 2 cup sifted powdered sugar
  2. 3-4 Tbsp strong coffee or espresso


  • Preheat oven to 350º.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together mashed bananas, sugars, butter, milk, and egg.
  • In another medium bowl, whisk together the flour, espresso powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the well and stir until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter into a greased bundt pan.
  • Bake in the center of the oven for about 50-60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let it cool in the pan for 15 minutes.
  • Turn out onto a cooling rack with parchment paper below and let sit for about 30 more minutes.
  • When cake is barely warm to the touch, make the glaze by mixing the powdered sugar and coffee together with a whisk. You want it to be pourable, but still quite thick.
  • Pour it over the cake, letting it run down the sides, into the middle, and onto the parchment paper below.
  • Let it harden for about 15 minutes.
