And for the other cake...

This was the other cake we ate for dinner on Tuesday. Once again...try to plan ahead and place this where it is supposed to go in your meal. As good as is it is...even though it has bananas, whole wheat, milk and eggs...you cannot justify this as your entree...believe me, I tried. Here is the recipe:

Banana Cake

1 C milk

1 3/4 C whole wheat flour

2 medium bananas

1/2 C butter

3 eggs

1 T baking powder

1 C granulated sugar

1 tsp. banana extract flavoring

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter until frothy. Add in sugar and beat until creamed. Add milk, bananas, eggs and banana extract. Mix well. Add in flour and baking powder and beat for 1 minute on medium and 2 minutes on high speed. Pour into greased 13X9 pan. Bake for 30-33 minutes.

Frost with Buttercream frosting as follows:

3 sticks butter (beat on high speed until light)

4 C powdered sugar (add 1 C at a time and beat after each addition)

1/2 tsp. banana extract

Add 1-2 T milk, as needed

After adding all powdered sugar, add banana extract and milk.
