Today we made banana coffee cake from one of my mothers old cookbooks. After spilling the flour, creating way more dishes than necessary, and tasty batter getting splattered all over my kitchen, as well as my blue polo shirt- we were able to make a kick butt Banana Coffee Cake!
The recipe calls for…
8oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. butter, softened
3 bananas, mashed
1 t. vanilla
1-1/4 c. all purpose flour
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, mix the first three ingredients together, then add the eggs one at a time followed by the bananas and vanilla. Next come the dry ingredients. Put it all into a 13X9 pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.
We opted to use a 9×9 pan and a loaf pan instead so we could both share a pan with our families. And let me tell you, they LOVED it. It took way longer to cook then the directions say (they were in the oven for almost 45 mins!) but the wait was worth it. We also threw on some brown sugar/cinnamon mixture to give the cake sweetness, as well as crunch. Yum-
Lets hope for many more easy and fun experiences like the one today 🙂
