Sunday, August 21, 2016
I always thought bananas need to be utilized more often with this banana spice cake mix cake it's over the top yummy!

If you need to get rid of those ripe bananas you just found the best tasting cake around.

Doesn't need a thing other than a dusting of powdered sugar or better yet cinnamon sugar.

This is the best cake for tea, coffee, or just because you need a sweet pick me up.

I have made delicious Sour Cream Coffee Cupcakes using a cake mix, cookies, and even a Scrumptious Banana Cake Mix Cake that all taste like they were from scratch!

It's so easy I feel guilty calling this a recipe!

Easy Doctored Cakes

This is one of those recipes that everyone loves at an adult party.

The cake is soaked with a buttery rum and with a spice cake it's the perfect combination of flavors.

This is just an option as the cake will taste great with a dollop of just whipped cream or even a light dusting of powdered sugar.

Very versatile starting out with a cake mix.
