banana cake with cream cheese frosting

I had a few over ripe banana’s lying around today and so I thought I would make a banana cake. I looked through my cake books and could find one that was simple so I looked online and found this gem. It was quick and really easy to make and took me about 10 mins to whip up. It tastes great too! I didn’t use the lemon frosting recipe as I had no lemons so I decided to make my own with what I had. I just used half cream cheese, half butter and then added icing sugar until it got to the sweetness that I liked. It’s still warm and I am eating my first slice now. It is divine.

Are you baking anything nice today?

  1. That looks amazing. Please tell me there are chocolate chips in there!! The only thing I made today was a taco salad with turkey meat. i mixed ranch dressing and salsa together for the salad. So good!
