Banana honey cake

Yield: 1 cake

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Honey
1 teaspoon Soda
1 cup Quaker Oats, uncooked (quick or old-fashioned)
¾ cup Butter or margarine; soft
½ cup Sugar
6 ounces Cream cheese; soft
2 Eggs
1 cup Mashed bananas
1½ cup Sifted all-purpose flour
¾ teaspoon Baking powder
¾ teaspoon Salt
2½ cup Sifted confectioners' sugar



For cake, bring honey to a boil in medium-sized saucepan; add ½ teaspoon of the soda. Pour over oats; stir to combine. Cover and let stand 10 minutes.

Beat butter until creamy; gradually add sugar, beating until fluffy.

Blend in eggs. Add oats mixture and bananas; blend well. Sift together flour, remaining ½ teaspoon soda, baking powder and salt.

Add to creamed mixture; blend well.

Pour batter into 2 greased and waxed paper-lined 8-inch round cake pans. Bake in preheated moderate oven (350 F.) 30 to 35 minutes.

Cool on wire rack about 10 minutes. Remove from pans; cool.

For frosting, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually add sugar, beating until frosting is smooth and of spreading consistency. Spread between layers and over top of cake; refrigerate. Just before serving, decorate with banana slices. Makes one 2-layer cake.
