This was wonderful and moist!! I agree that there was more than enough topping.
Brown Sugar-Banana Coffee Cakes
Notes: To save time when making these individual coffee cakes in the morning, make the streusel (step 1) up to a week ahead; seal in a zip-lock plastic bag and chill. You can also mash the bananas (cover and chill) and butter and flour the muffin pan the night before.

- 1. To make streusel mixture, in a food processor or a bowl, whirl or mix 3/4 cup flour, 3/4 cup brown sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cut 1/4 cup butter into chunks and add to bowl; pulse mixture or cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.

- 4. Divide batter equally among 6 jumbo (1-cup capacity) or 18 regular (1/3-cup capacity) buttered and floured muffin cups, filling each halfway. Sprinkle streusel evenly over tops of cakes (crumble the streusel first if it sticks together).
