Banana Loaf Cake
This is yet another terrific banana bread / cake recipe courtesy of AllRecipes.com! I made a double batch and my son in particular is loving this recipe. We had some leftover cream cheese frosting, and he's used that on a couple pieces to make the bread like a piece of cake, ate some plain, and some with a pat of butter. However you want to to enjoy this recipe, it is flexible, moist, flavorful, and delicious!
I fixed these up to use up a bunch of overripe bananas I had frozen - my "bag 'o bananas" was getting pretty full and this looked like a great way to put them to very good use! I'm so glad we tried this one out - it's a terrific recipe! I did add a tsp of cinnamon to my batter, but am not sure if it made any different or not.
