Recipe For Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting


Over the Christmas holidays, my sister in law celebrated a birthday. I told her to pick out whatever meal she wanted for that night’s celebration. She chose this cake for dessert. It is one my mom started making when I was a little girl. I have so many memories of her bringing a frozen cake out of the freezer for dessert. I loved eating the cake and frosting when they were almost thawed, but still cold and firm. This was the only way I would ever eat anything made with a banana. Somehow the thick frosting and spices covered the banana flavor enough for this banana hater.

It’s delicious fresh, too. Spicy and incredibly moist, topped with a thick layer of cream cheese frosting this is one of the best ways of using up over-ripe bananas. For a 9X13 pan, I used six bananas. It is a really thick cake.
