How many of you have gone to pull a ripe banana from a bunch only to have the tops of all the bananas come along with it? Then you either have to eat all the bananas, figure out a use for them or throw them out.Well, a few days back that happened to me for the umpteenth time. Since I had no desire to eat five bananas that day and I don’t like to throw away perfectly good food, I decided to check around the blogs for tasty banana recipes. Wouldn’t you know it, I came across an amazing recipe for Banana Bread Bars with Brown Butter Frosting on Life’s Simple Measures. I knew immediately that this was the recipe for me and my bananas. I love banana bread & add frosting . . . Yes Please!
I did make some changes to the recipe. Mine is more of a cake than a bar and I added some spices. I also added cream cheese and decreased the frosting recipe. So technically I made: Banana Bread Cake with Brown Butter ~ Cream Cheese Frosting (Sheesh… that’s a mouth full!)
The last step is the best … Start shoveling cake into your mouth like so!
Then ask your Mom to take the remaining slices to work with her before you eat the entire cake within a 24 hour period.
(This last step may just have been necessary for me)
In my family we get to request what type of cake we want on our birthday. I always asked for banana bread instead of cake. Problem solved, I can have the best of both worlds.Now I just have to wait until October for another luscious piece of Banana Bread Cake … or until I accidentally rip the tops off of all the bananas again.I hope you decide to give this recipe a try, it really is Amazing!
