How To Make Banana Cake with Mascarpone Frosting

BananaCake1

Admittedly I am not a baker BUT after many many years I have perfected this recipe because it is the only cake I know I can make and rely on; with little skills I have in baking. I know it will turn out right! I have hosted Suppers before and sometimes one of my dessert is something baked. While it’s in the oven I hope and pray that it will turn out fine, Luckily for me it turned out edible, haha!

I always buy bananas for the family, it’s a great snack and its tasty. Sometime we have too many over-ripe bananas and because I hate wasting food I make it into a banana cake. FYI when I say over-ripe, its when the skin starts to form black dots. For some reason my kiddos don’t want to eat them anymore..kids ey!

I hope you enjoy my recipe and if you make my recipe please tag me on your social so I can see what you made!
