Funfetti Banana Cake

Funfetti  Banana Cake Slice

This past Monday was our 2 year wedding anniversary, and after thinking for a while about what cake I wanted to make to celebrate, I decided on this banana cake decorated with funfetti frosting. The bananas make the cake very moist, and decrease the amount of butter required, making it a little healthier! Of course the frosting negates my attempt in making a healthier anniversary cake, but I love funfetti frosting so much and just couldn’t leave it off. Plus, it makes the cake so much prettier! For a healthier version, you can omit the frosting – the cake is delicious just by itself!

I am so happy it is the weekend! This week was busy for me, and I had to commute almost an hour to work and back for a few days. This weekend I just want to eat, watch movies, sleep in, and go to the gym! The last is a MUST after eating this yummy banana cake all week šŸ˜‰

What are your plans for the weekend?

      Hey girl! This cake looks amazing! I was sent to a FB page to check for content stolen from my site and I recognized one of your pictures on it. I came back here to double check and it is definitely your picture with the watermark cropped out. She also posts the full recipe. Here is the link in case you want to report her or complain….other bloggers are furious because she refuses to take anything down. https://www.facebook.com/ArkhamCookBook
