  • ¾tspbaking powder
  • ¼tspsalt
  • 5tbspunsalted butter,softened to room temperature
  • ½cupgranulated sugar

For Streusel:

  • ¼cuplight brown sugar,or dark, packed
  • ¾cupsemi sweet chocolate chips
  • ½cuppecans,or walnuts, chopped, optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8×8-inch or 9×9-inch baking pan. Set aside.

  2. In a medium bowl, toss the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together. Set aside.

  3. Using a handheld or stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the butter on high speed for about 1 minute until creamy. Scrape down the sides and the bottom of the bowl as needed.

  4. Switch the mixer to medium speed and beat in the sugar until combined. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.

  5. Add the mashed banana and yogurt and turn the mixer on high and beat for about 1 minute until creamy.

  6. Turn the mixer off and pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Turn the mixer on low and slowly beat until combined. Do not overmix.


  1. Combine the cinnamon, brown sugar, semi sweet chocolate chips, and pecans into a small bowl.

  2. Layer half of the batter into the prepared baking pan. Top with half of the streusel. Repeat with the rest of the batter and streusel.

  3. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, covering the cake with aluminum foil after 25 minutes to prevent the edges from browning too quickly. Bake until the center is baked through. Test doneness with a toothpick; if it comes out clean, the cake is done.

  4. Allow to slightly cool for 10 minutes before cutting.

  5. Serve and enjoy!
