Banana Nut Bread with Buttercream Frosting
We have had this great recipe for banana bread forever. It was actually on the back of a bag of Gold Medal® flour. I decided that making some banana nut bread with buttercream frosting would make the banana bread even better. Boy, was I right!
These cute little oven safe baking cups worked out perfectly for making this banana nut bread. They are about 4 inches wide and a little over an inch tall. Perfect when a cupcake is just not enough and a cake is too much, this is the perfect size for a large piece of sweetness.
Banana anything is always amazing and these banana nut bread with buttercream frosting cakes are definitely some serious sweets.
Imagine sinking your teeth into this deliciousness. SO GOOD! The buttercream frosting tastes amazing too! I should have called it cream cheese buttercream frosting but that just seemed tooooo long of a title. This frosting has both butter and cream cheese. Two delicious frosting ingredients in one tasty frosting. So good!
When I was taking pictures, my sister in law came home from work and instantly started helping me. I needed someone to “taste test” one of these babies. She gladly agreed. I made some cupcakes as well which her input helped those pictures turn out awesome too! I’ll post the cupcakes later. Anyway, it was fun having her help me. Thank you Suzanne!
