Banana Frosting

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by JamesDeansGirl

An old recipe of my grandmother's; my mother and grandfather love it on spice cake. Grandma's recipe card says that this frosting is similar to a banana-frosted spice cake A&P used to sell back in the very early 70s.

Yummy!!! Based on other reviews, I used two smallish bananas that were very, very ripe. It had an awesome banana flavor, and as other reviewers mentioned, it was quite fluffy - so not a hard type of frosting at all. I used it to frost Brownies by chef Tweetygrams (my favorite brownie recipe on this site!). Oh, and I made the recipe as stated, but took half and added cream cheese and a bit more powdered sugar. WOW! Both versions were absolute keepers. Thanks for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition
