TWD Lots-of-Ways Banana Cake


Kimberly was our host at TWD this week. She chose a great recipe that I will make again. Lots-of-Ways Banana Cake was just what the name suggested. Use brown sugar and white sugar if you have both, if not all white will work. Liquid could be coconut milk, whole milk, buttermilk, sour cream or plain yogurt, I used a combination. Toasted coconut or dried fruit were suggested add-ins. I went with the toasted coconut, it was yummy.


I made cupcakes as they are easier to share. They fell slightly in the middle, not enough to worry me just more room for topping. I made a white chocolate cream cheese frosting. It was very rich. Next time I make this recipe, it will be soon, I will top slices with whipped cream. I think that would be the perfect dessert!
Another 5 star recipe from Dorie, Kimberly has the recipe posted. This was a fun recipe with so many variations,  see what other  TWD bakers created.

Oh they look so good! So what if they fell a little, it's the taste that counts, right? Love the white chocolate cream cheese frosting idea. Very creative.

I want one of those cupcakes right now! Cream cheese icing is a great accompaniment to banana cake.

White chocolate cream cheese!!! Hello and good night!!!!

Charli said...

I made the white chocolate whipped cream frosting, but was thinking next time I'd try the cream cheese frosting hehe. The grass is always greener, eh?

I love all the flexibility in this recipe!

Kayte said...

They look lovely as cupcakes. I wish I had gone that route, then Mark would not have had to had banana cake every day for a week in his lunch! Live and learn...next time, with something like this, I'm going the cupcake route so that I can freeze them and bring them out over a period of time.

Clivia said...

Love your cupcakes! They turned out beautifully.
