If you have a few bananas going bad, you must try this recipe! A girl I used to work with let me have a sample of this a few years ago, and I have been in love with it ever since! This recipe turns out moist and delicious, and topped with the cream cheese frosting….it’s amazing 🙂 I can’t say enough good things about this recipe, for us it’s a keeper.
I think it’s especially important to bake it in a 10 x 13 inch pan, because you get a thick layer of cream cheese frosting to go with the bananas…yum! The recipe calls for a can of premade cream cheese frosting, but I made my own this time. If you want to save time, pick up a can of frosting.
