A slice of this delicious Brown Sugar Banana Snack Cake with Vanilla Frosting is the perfect sweet treat for snack time or any time!
Ever since my son’s birthday last month, he has been asking and asking for me to make another batch of Vanilla Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting. I typically only make cake and cupcakes with frosting for special occasions and birthdays. However, since the next birthday in our family is not until May, I decided to compromise and make a snack cake.
A snack cake — as loosely defined by me — is a cake with some wholesome ingredients, it may be lightly frosted and, here’s the key, can be eaten as a snack any time of day. Some Internet searching and recipe adapting, resulted in this wonderful Brown Sugar Banana Snack Cake with Vanilla Frosting.
My son absolutely loves this cake, it is so delicious and I can feel good about my son having a slice because it contains wholesome bananas; and my son is delighted because he gets cake with frosting.
I’ve been packing a slice of this Brown Sugar Banana Snack Cake with Vanilla Frosting for my son’s snack at school; he also likes a slice for his after dinner dessert. Some family members — myself included — enjoy a little sliver along with breakfast or as a mid-morning pick-me-up.
The first time I made this Brown Sugar Banana Snack Cake with Vanilla Frosting, it disappeared in a manner of days. I made it again this weekend and even managed to take a couple of photos before my kids pounced on it.
I adapted this recipe from this one that I found at Butteryum. The main change I made was to use brown sugar instead of white. I love the richness and hint of butterscotch that brown sugar brings to baked goods, and it complements the banana nicely.
A slice of this delicious Brown Sugar Banana Snack Cake with Vanilla Frosting is the perfect treat whenever you are craving a little something sweet, as a mid-day snack or anytime!
