Foolproof, One Bowl Banana Cake

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Sarah Chana

Made for those of us who often only have time to bake in the wee hours of the morning (or when we are half asleep), this super easy banana cake offers a great way to use up the , overripe bananas sitting on the top of your refrigerator, and still make something that everyone will enjoy. It can be frosted or not, but I usually don't bother; it stands on its own. Another winner from "The Makings of a Meal."

How easy!!! I made muffins instead so they would be easy on the go. I followed the recipe ingredients but I only had 2 medium bananas that had been in my freezer for a month or so. I also only had butter. The recipe doesn't say to melt or soften so I went with softening it. Worked great!!! I baked them at the same temp for 25 minutes. I will definitely keep this recipe at arms length. Thank you for sharing :)
