Banana Bread

This banana snack cake is the perfect solutions to your excess of ripe bananas issue! And if you don’t this problem well then get some bananas and forget about them, because you need this cake in your life!

This recipe is compliments of one of my oldest daughters BFF’s. It’s in our school cookbook. It is so good it literally disappears at our house! I think the secret is the sour cream. I’m telling you sour cream and cream cheese make the world go around!

We have failed to follow the cool down step, and burned our mouths on this treat....so proceed with caution if you choose to do the same!
