Banana Bars with Maple Brown Sugar Frosting

Some weeks we go through bananas like crazy and other weeks I feel like I should open a Geriatric Banana Nursing Home in the far corner of our kitchen. This was an elderly banana nursing home week. An alarming number of ailing bananas were piled high in our fruit bowl and I knew I had to take action.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! I hope you all have had a wonderful day filled with love and happiness. My boys and I had a fabulous day which involved game-playing, craft-creating, naughty-food-eating, movie-watching, super-snuggling and vicious present-opening. This season has been totally nuts, but I have felt so grateful today. We have much to be thankful for!

Fun Minion Cupcakes Recipe

Minions are taking over my life, people. All my boys do is recite lines and play out scenes from Despicable Me 2. Over and over and over until the sun goes down and they are tucked tightly into their little beds. They basically only speak to one another in minion-talk these days. It's a good thing the movie is so cute and that the minions are so darn lovable!

Lemon Buttercream Frosting Recipe

This lemon buttercream frosting is incredibly light and delicious. Finger-licking recommended!

I have a great weakness for frosting. Whether it adorns a cake or a cupcake or a spoon or my finger, I do not care. Consisting mainly of that ingredient I love so much called sugar, it is one of the foods I have a very hard time resisting. This lemon buttercream frosting is incredibly light and delicious. It went great with the three-layer lemon cake I recently made, and it would be a good topping for a number of other baked goods, as well.

In a medium bowl, beat the following ingredients with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy:

1 cup softened butter

2 tablespoons lemon zest

Add 3 1/2 cups of confectioners' sugar in batches and beat until light and fluffy. Add 3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice and beat for 1 more minute.

Don't allow your three-year-old to try a sample or you will risk losing half the batch.

Delicious Carrot Layer Cake Recipe

This is a beautifully layered cake that is tender with a perfect compliment of unique orange-honey frosting. You’ll be surprised how easy it is to make a classic recipe like this. Carrot Layer Cake is a beautiful dessert to bring out and share with friends and family.

I want to know what person first thought that carrots and cake would go well together. It sounds terrible! It certainly is a delicious combination, though, isn't it? Pair it with a creamy frosting and there is not a whole lot that beats it.

I saw this recipe in Christmas Baking 2010 magazine and knew I had to make it. My husband's birthday was coming up, so there was my perfect excuse to do so! I don't think I need to tell you that it tasted incredible. The pictures speak quite well for themselves.

STEPS TO MAKE A LAYERED CARROT CAKE

Enjoy a perfectly spiced, moist carrot cake with this easy recipe!

START HERE

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

**Allow 4 eggs to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, you can start greasing three 9x5x3.5-inch loaf pans and set them aside.

Then sift together: 2 cups flour, 2 cups sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon cardamom, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon salt.

Toast a 1/2 cup of pecans in a saute pan.

Finely chop the pecans after toasting for adding to your cake batter.

In a medium bowl, combine: 4 eggs, 3 cups finely shredded carrots, 1/2 cup toasted, chopped pecans and 3/4 cup vegetable oil.

Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir until well combined.

Divide the batter amongst three greased loaf pans.

Bake in preheated oven for about 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of it comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes and remove. Do this carefully! One of my cakes broke straight down the center.

Place one cake layer on a rectangular serving platter and spread 1/2 cup of Orange-Honey Frosting over top of it. Top with another cake layer and another 1/2 cup of frosting. Add remaining cake layer and spread with the remaining frosting.

To store, cover and place it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

SHREDDING YOUR CARROTS

Carrots are an important ingredient in this recipe! There are a couple of ways to prepare your carrots.

  • You can use a cheese grater to shred your carrots by hand.

  • You can also use your food processor. If you use the carrot shredder, make sure that you don’t let the carrots get to mushy/over shredded. You don’t want mush or juice!
