Cheetah Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Moist banana cake with rich, dreamy cream cheese frosting.

‘Cheetah’ bananas baked in the cake

Don’t be tempted to throw them out.  You know, those bananas that have past their prime peel and eat phase.  OK,  I’ll admit it, I have been known to over purchase bananas so that a few will transform from yellow to gold and black cheetah jackets. Some things you can’t leave to fate.
Cheetah-Banana-Cake-with-WalnutsIf you like banana bread, this cake is a ‘lighter than banana bread’ version of a dense cake all sauced up with its perfect combo, cream cheese frosting.  One bite of this luscious, dense cake and you will be addicted.  The flecked cake is moist and full of banana flavor. When your kitchen is beginning to show signs of animal print décor, throw together this cake.  Don’t attempt until your bananas have gone wild.

9 Frost the cake and sprinkle the remaining 1/3 cup walnuts on top for a little more texture.

The nuts on top create an animal print design.

Buttermilk – Substitute sour milk for buttermilk with 2 Tbsp vinegar and enough milk to make 2/3 cup and let stand for 5 minutes.

Freezing Cake – To save the cake for later, after cooling wrap well and freeze.

      Your cake came out perfect. This is my ‘go to’ recipe when I have ‘cheetah’ bananas. I have even been known to use ‘black panther’ bananas. Thanks Holly for aptly naming bananas that have black skins. The blacker they are the sweeter they get. But there is a point of no return so get that cake in the oven before it’s too late.
