This cake was brought to a luncheon by a coworker. It was delicious. Since then, I have been making it, people love it and it is a great, easy way to use up those overripe bananas that sneak up on you.
I got this recipe a real long time ago...like 25 years ago. I think I sent away to Hellmans asking for some recipes and this was one of them. It is absolutely moist and delicious. The flavors are outstanding especially with the cream cheese frosting. Can't be too bad for you right, it has carrots....must be healthy. Depends on who I am making this for I sometimes eliminate the walnuts.
Inspired by Recipe#3794. I found that the blueberries and juice get more evenly distributed than peaches do, for more fruit flavor in every bite!
Note: This works best if you have the "1-packet" type of angel food cake mix. If you have the "2-packet" kind, you can empty both packets into the bowl together, but you may end up with a slightly denser cake.
Feel free to try this with other kinds of fruit in juice. I'd like to know how it turns out! I've already made it with pineapple, peaches, and blueberries. I might try strawberries next....
This is a moist, spicey cake. Easy to make and tastes OLD FASHIONED. Good for dessert or as a breakfast treat. Can't remember where I got the recipe, I think from a resident's grand daughter ( I work at a retirement community)
This is chocolate paradise! I am a severe chocoholic and this fills the bill for ooey, gooey, and oh so good. This is from a friend that I used to go to church with. I helped a boy make this for a bake-off at church and he won first prize. My sister donated a certificate for this cake to a charity auction and the woman that bought it has called 4 times since then to have me to make this for her.
This makes the most wonderful creamy dreamy frosting and to make this even more creamy and fluffy add in 1-2 cups thawed Cool Whip frozen topping start with 1 cup and add in more until desired texture, this frosting freezes well ----- for coconut-cream cheese frosting add in 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon coconut extract and reduce the vanilla to 1 teaspoon, also add in 1/2 cup sweetened flaked or shredded coconut at the end of beating
