Make the cake:
Grease and line an 8-inch springform pan. Preheat your oven to 175 C.
Mix all the ingredients for the streusel in a small bowl (mixture will resemble wet sand.)
In a medium-large bowl add the browned butter (cooled), mashed bananas and sugar, and mix really well. Then add the vanilla and coffee.
Sift in the flour, baking powder and, salt. Add the walnuts. Gently combine with a whisk or spatula. Add milk if your batter is too thick.
Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan. Let it level out.
Press the streusel mixture little by little on your hand and sprinkle it on the batter.
Bake the cake at 175 C for approximately 50 minutes. A skewer inserted in the center should come out clean. Leave the cake to cool completely on a wire rack in the cake pan.
Mix the ingredients for the glaze, add enough coffee to thin it out according to your desired consistency.
Drizzle the glaze when the cake is slightly warm. Cut once cooled. Enjoy!
Make the brown butter:
Method 1 – In a heavy bottom saucepan, heat the butter on a medium flame stirring occasionally for 5-8 mintes till the butter changes in colour and smells nutty. Set aside to cool.
Method 2 – Add the butter into a microwave safe bowl and microwave on full power for about 5-6 minutes, stop to stir once in the middle. Set aside to cool.
