I’ve had this recipe for a few years, and can’t remember what book or friend it came from. It must have been given to me by someone, as it is written in my recipe notebook. I have the ingredients written down, but not the directions. So, I’m wondering if it was a recipe that I had to “decipher” from the handwriting of someone else. I just mix and bake per general cake and frosting directions – and it works perfectly.

Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting and Walnuts

Regardless of where it came from, it’s yummy!

You can leave out the walnuts if you don’t like them or have an allergy. I love the crunch they add to the cake and the frosting. You can also choose to only put the walnuts in either the cake batter or the frosting. Or, you could just sprinkle on top.

Enjoy and Happy baking! ๐Ÿ’‹
