This morning I decided to put these bananas to good use.(Don't you just hate it when bananas become speckled, mushy and draw the attention of fruit flies) I could not bear to throw them out. However, being tired of my "same old" banana bread recipe I went on a search and found the website of"Chubba Gurl" She discovered a Banana Cake recipe ( but could not remember where) Having all the ingredients on hand I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did as it is delicious! ( I added the walnuts)

I've posted the recipe below if anyone would like to give it a try. Thanks Cubba Gurl.


1/2 Cup Butter Softened

1 1/2 Cup Sugar

2 Eggs

2 Cups Flour Sifted

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1/2 Cup Milk

1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla

3 Bananas Mashed add 3/4 Teaspoon baking soda to Bananas.
Grease and flour a 9x13 pan

Cream butter and sugar. Add in eggs then vanilla. Add mashed bananas that have been mixed with 3/4 baking soda. In a separate bowl sift dry ingredients, slowly add to liquids, then add milk.

Bake in 350 oven, I baked mine for 30 minutes and it was perfect. Cool and add cream cheese frosting. Beat 1/2 stick butter, 8 o/z cream cheese, 1 lb powered sugar, 2 teaspoon vanilla. Yummy!
