I keep finding recipes for banana birthday cake that either have zero sweetening or WAY too much. I want a very basic banana birthday cake that is lightly sweetened, made with whole food ingredients and that the whole family will enjoy. Our little guy turns 1 in three weeks. :)


Anyone have a good one?

There are some really simple 3 ingredient ones out there, I believe.  I made one of them once.  I'll see if I can find the recipe.

I made the banana and blueberry cake I think four recipes down. It was really good. It was more muffin like than cupcake like for my taste, but my son loved it. Blueberries are his favorite.

This can be baked in a pan like a cake.  I made a frosting out of homemade labneh and raw honey.  You could also use cream cheese, neufchatel, or marscapone.
