The more brown a banana, the sweeter they get! Don’t throw away those brown bananas. Save them and make this delicious Banana Cake!
I admit, I used to throw the brown bananas in the compost. They just looked so icky to me and I couldn’t imagine peeling the skin and eating one. Blech. However, little did I realize just how many uses for brown bananas there are. They are so sweet, yummy and perfect to use in your baking.
In fact, I buy bananas and let them sit on the counter till they get that deep yellow colour and flecks of brown. My mom throws brown bananas in the freezer to use. I would too if I had a deep freezer.
This Banana Cake is sweet, dense and packed full of flavour. The cream cheese icing is the perfect complement.
It reminds me a little of a Banana Bread, but in cake form. It’s also super easy to make. Serve for a sweet breakfast with your morning coffee or as a dessert to a nice meal.
