Hawaii Mom Blog: Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I'm not a big fan of cakes, cupcakes, and anything else with frosting, but I'll make an exception if the frosting is made with cream cheese.

Since I had some cream cheese to use up, I decided to make a Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting based on this recipe from Taste of Home.

I ended up using the entire frosting recipe to frost the cake, but next time I'd just use half the recipe, because it was quite a thick layer of frosting.

I also added some leftover Brickle bits I had in the pantry.  It made the cake look pretty, but it tasted way too sweet (next time I'd leave the Brickle off entirely, and maybe add some chopped nuts instead).

However, once I took off all of the Brickle bits, the cake was perfect.

In fact, the banana cake itself without the frosting was super good too!
