Wednesday, May 15, 2013

I think this is a quick easy comforting dessert that no matter when I make this it's a favorite. The mascarpone cheese is a great addition to make ordinary banana cake taste wonderfully decadent. Add some chopped garnishing favorites on top and you

will have something for everyone!







Banana Cake:



1/2 cup butter

2 cups of sugar

3 large eggs

1 1/2 cups mashed banana

2 teaspoons of banana rum, or regular rum or banana extract if not available

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

pinch of salt



Optional garnish for topping the frosting: 1/2 cup chopped pecans, diced raisins, flaked coconut, craisins, or miniature chocolate chips



Cream sugar and butter together, beating around 3 to 4 minutes. Beat in eggs and banana's along with flavoring. Mix well. Pour in to a 15x10 inch x 1 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees till brown and set around 25 minutes. Cool completely. Frost and garnish with whatever your favorites are, suggestions above.





Frosting:



4 ounces Mascarpone Cheese

2 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

Blend in a medium-sized bowl the cheese and vanilla with a fork adding the powdered sugar a little at a time. Add some water if too thick to spread, 1 teaspoon at a time.



Spread over cooled cut into squares banana cake.
