Forget about your recipe for banana loaf bread because this Super Fluffy Banana Bread Cake will change your world because its moist, fluffy, and not overly sweet. As if that wasn’t enough, it is slathered with a thin layer of creamy, buttery vanilla frosting. Buckle up buttercup because this recipe is about to rock your socks off!
Let’s be honest, if you’re like me you most likely have a few bananas hanging around that are obviously so overripe that they are starting to flatten out on your countertop. Your boyfriend tells you he’s going to throw them away but you always use the excuse of, “Don’t touch them, they’re perfect! I’m going to bake with them!” And then a few more days go by and you’re just upset with yourself that you are holding onto these sad excuse for nanners.
Then it gets to a point where you have to claim your bananas. You know those little fruit flies love themselves a super ripe banana and there’s no way I’m letting them have it. So what do you do? You bake, like you said you were going to for days. Of course you could do what everyone and their mamas do and bake banana bread loaf but who wants to be that basic? I certainly don’t, and I won’t let you either friends!
But do you want to know something? The sad excuse for bananas are the perfect texture for your new favorite banana recipe. This recipe. Yes, this is going to be your new favorite banana recipe, hands down, without a doubt, no ifs ands or buts about it…ok, ok, you get it.
My feelings e-x-a-c-t-l-y. Well, OUR feelings, because you will die from fluffiness after you taste this.
THIS-IS-EVERYTHING. So let’s talk crumb for a moment. The crumb is the interior texture of any baked good. Whether it be cake, scones, breads, or cookies, the crumb determines whether you have succeeded or if you need to eat your feelings in failed cookies. That has never happened to me, for the record. Let’s take a look at the crumb on this baby!
Bee-yoo-tee-fool! Okay, just one more…
Oh, and the frosting? I can’t leave that out. I stuck with a quick and creamy vanilla buttercream. Seriously, you can’t mess up that frosting. I stuck with a thin layer because let’s be real here, this isn’t the vanilla frosting show, it’s the make-me-every-single-week banana bread cake show.
Get this on your weekly menu NOW. After you die, come back and tell me all about the fluffiness! Do it.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, everyone!
