Banana sheet cake with cream cheese frosting – moist and sweet from the mashed bananas with a little tangyness from the cream cheese frosting
When life gives me overripe bananas, I make a banana sheet cake with cream cheese icing. That was pretty much my motto over the weekend.
I woke up early as usual and decided to surprise my family with a freshly baked treat just in time for breakfast. While sipping on my cup of coffee and waiting for the cake to cool down I remembered my early days of baking.
No, I haven’t been baking since pre-school or kindergarten. Not even from high school or college. My first baking adventures started few years ago while expecting our first child. I remembered how big our kitchen seemed to me before stuffing every square inch with candy, pretty cupcake liners, bags of flour and sugar.
The kitchen was just for reheating coffee. For dinner we had four choices: microwave, home delivery, take out or dine in. The day I decided to bake something I actually had to go out and buy a baking pan. We had only plates and a couple of saucepans. Slowly I started to feel more comfortable in the kitchen.
It didn’t feel new anymore, although we had it for a couple of years.
But that was me …. almost 4 years ago.
I’m pretty sure my friend Ashton will be baking and cooking in her kitchen in no time.
You see, they just moved into their first house. With a backyard, which is paradise when you have a little one who loves playing outside. Since she’s still busy unpacking her baking pans and cooking pots, a handful of friends gathered to throw her a housewarming party.
Congratulations on the new house Ashton!!!! Today, take a little break and party with us!!!

This banana cake is just perfect for parties. It’s easy to put together, bakes in no time and if you’re in a hurry like I was you add the frosting while it still slightly warm and watch how it slowly starts to melt and run down the sides. Quickly grab a fork and dig in. Nothing goes to waste.
