1/3 Photos of Banana Snack Cake With Brown-Butter Frosting
I always seem to have "over-ripe" bananas that I try to use before they become way too mushy. I found this recipe in Good Housekeeping and tried it. All the other ingredients are staples in my pantry and it's a great way to use up those extra bananas -- my family thinks it is really delicious as well.
