Diva Dane’s Cooking Moment, Part 2

Hey Everyone,

As I have stated before, I love to bake, cook and create drinks. Today I wanted to share another baking recipe that I tried and fell in love with.

Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frostingcake

Ingredients

For the cake:
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
    • 2 tablespoons canola oil
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
    • 1 large egg white, at room temperature
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 4 large ripe bananas
    • 1/4 cup milk
For the frosting:
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 & 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped toasted nuts (optional)

Instructions

To make the cake:

Preheat oven to 375°. Spray an 8-inch square pan with cooking spray.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Using an electric mixer, beat butter, oil, and sugar. Beat in eggs and egg white, 1 at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in vanilla.

In a separate bowl, mash bananas with milk. Set aside.

Gradually mix half of dry ingredients into butter mixture. Mix in bananas. Mix in remaining dry ingredients. Pour cake batter into prepared baking pan.

Bake 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on wire rack.

To make the frosting:

Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat cream cheese and vanilla. Reduce speed and gradually add confectioners’ sugar.

Spread frosting on cake. Sprinkle with nuts.
