Terrific recipe! I added a splash of banana liqueur to the frosting ingredients-yum! I also came up with a no-mess way to mash the bananas. I put the peeled bananas in a zip-style plastic freezer bag, squeezed out most of the air, sealed it, then handed it to the kids and told them to squeeze away. Afterward, I snipped off one corner of the bag and squeezed the banana puree into my measuring cup.

Excellent! I made this today for the kids and my breakfast this week. I didn't even make the frosting and it's still amazing! Thanks!

I make this at least once a month - a fave with all. It reminds me of those freezer snack cakes I used to have when I was little - only better!
