Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

This is the best ever banana cake.  It is so moist and has a lot of banana flavour, made even better by adding cream cheese frosting.  It is dangerous for me to have this cake in the house because I cannot pass it without cutting off a little bite.  I also like to keep this one in the fridge, I like it better cold. You can use the frosting or if you prefer more of a snacking cake for breakfast mid-morning snack, it is also very good with out the frosting.

Pour batter into a 9″X13″and bake.

TO prepare the cream cheese frosting:

Take 1 block of cream cheese at room temperature, 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature, 2 tsp vanilla and about 3 cups icing sugar.  Mix until combined and creamy smooth.  I usually add 2 cups of the icing sugar and them keep adding until it is as sweet as I want it.

Well I got carried away and didn’t take a picture before frosting!
