1 white cake mix
2-3 ripe bananas, mashed
Follow cake mix directions on box and prepare as usual. Add in mashed bananas and stir. Bake as directed.
Allow to cool and frost with cream cheese icing. Simple right? haha
1/2 cup of butter (1 stick), room temperature
8 oz of Philly cream cheese (1 package), room temperature
2 - 3 cups of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 With an electric mixer, mix the butter and cream cheese together, about 3 minutes on medium speed until very smooth. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl to ensure even mixing.
2 Add the vanilla extract and mix. Slowly add the powdered sugar. Keep adding until you get to desired sweetness and thickness.
3 Either spread on with a blunt knife or spatula, or spoon into a piping bag to decorate your cake or cupcake.
*I also sometimes add a tablespoon of crisco if you want a creamier icing.
My mom actually made the cake and I just iced it. We needed to use up some over ripe bananas and instead of the usual banana bread recipe we tried cake. It made the cake so moist and was a different from just a plain ol' white cake. I think a peanut butter cream cheese icing would also be good on this, a la the elvis. haha
