Banana-Coconut Coffee Cake with Macadamia Nut Streusel



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour three 8x1-1/4-inch round foil cake pans; set aside. In a medium bowl stir together the 3-1/2 cups flour, the coconut, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  2. In a very large mixing bowl beat the 1 cup butter, 3/4 cup granulated sugar, and 3/4 cup brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until light and fluffy. Continue beating for 1 minute, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in bananas, liqueur, milk, and vanilla on low speed just until combined (mixture may appear curdled). Add flour mixture; beat on low speed just until combined. Spread batter evenly in prepared pans.
  3. For streusel, in a small bowl stir together the 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and the cinnamon. Using a pastry blender, cut in the 1/4 cup cold butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in macadamia nuts. Sprinkle evenly over top of batter.
  4. Bake about 35 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the centers comes out clean. Cool in pans on a wire rack for 30 minutes. If desired, drizzle with Powdered Sugar Drizzle. Cool completely.
