    Substituting plain Greek yogurt for plain yogurt or buttermilk in baking is just not the same!

    Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

    I love to bake, but I am basically a lazy baker.  It has been a really long time since I baked a cake from scratch.  I am not a very discriminating cake-eater.  I was thrilled when I discovered that adding melted butter instead of oil to a cake mix seriously changes the texture and taste of the finished product.  I can, however, recognize when I’ve eaten something good.  This is a really good recipe! Thanks Amy and Pam for letting me share! Banana Cake Cake 1 1/2 cups ripe banana, mashed (about 4 – 6 medium-large) 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 3 cups flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 3/4 cup butter, room temperature 2 1/8 cups white sugar 3 large eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups buttermilk Cream Cheese Frosting 3/4 cup  butter, softened 12 oz. cream cheese, softened 6 to 7 cups powdered sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1. Pre-heat oven to 275°…yes, it is 275° – this is not a typo!  Grease or spray  2 – 8″ round cake pans with baking spray and set aside; for cupcakes, put paper liners in a cupcake pan and set aside. 2. In a small bowl, mix mashed bananas and lemon juice; set aside.  In a medium size bowl, sift the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. 3. In a large bowl (or mixer bowl),

    Died and Gone to Sprinkles Heaven!

    It’s true…after I discovered the Cake Batter Krispie Treat recipe, I have been on the hunt for good deals on candy sprinkles so that I will always have them on hand.  Just this afternoon I found some pretty, springy sprinkles at the 99centsonly store – about 1.7 oz for just under a dollar.  Good deal, right?  I thought so, too…that is until Megan bought me a box of these… Yep…a whole 10 pound box of the prettiest candy sprinkles EVER for just $15.99 for the whole box – Costco Business.  Aren’t they beautiful?  I feel an urge for some Cake Batter Krispie Treats! It could just be the beginning of a quest for desserts with sprinkles included.  Who needs a ticket for Mega Millions when you have a box of these!  I am the luckiest girl around!  Thanks, Megan!
