PINspiring | banana cake from glorious treats

I've been looking for an alternative to Banana Bread, every homemaker's standby recipe for overripe bananas. Because we're a family that prefers our bananas more on the green than fully yellow, we often have bananas that are good, but just too ripe for us. And how much banana bread can you eat? Okay, quite a bit, but you know what I mean.

Meet this glorious treat!

When Glory's Banana Cake recipe post popped up in my Blogger reader, I just knew it would be a winner and immediately pinned it to my to cook board on Pinterest.

I used a 9x9 pan and ended up baking it less than 25 minutes. I threw caution to the wind and went over the top on the frosting, using a whole brick of cream cheese and 1/2 stick of butter with the same amount of powdered sugar. It was hard waiting on the cake to cool so my frosting went on a warm cake, not hot, rather than a cooled cake as recommended. No worries, it was still as yummy as ever!

Even though Gordon voted the Banana Bread recipe I use from my Mom as his favorite, I think that I'll keep this recipe handy for a quick after-school treat option.

We've also tried Glory's Lemon Bread and, even though I am not really a lemon lover, I and everyone else on Mother's Day last year, LOVED it!
