I had some bananas that were getting a bit soft. My first thought was banana bread but then I decided I needed a dessert. Carlee has made Di's Banana Cake several times so it must be a hit. I decided to make that and change it a little by trying a new frosting. I had just created a Brownie Batter Ice Cream recipe so I had some brownie mix left. What a great way to top banana cake. I like a thick fudgy frosting so that is what I made. It is thick, rich and yummy.
Brownie Batter Frosting
1 cup brownie mix
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup butter, softened
1 T vanilla
1 T milk
3 cups powdered sugar
1 T hot water
- Place cocoa powder and brownie mix in bowl and whisk together.
- Add the butter and vanilla and mix well.
- Add milk and slowly add the powdered sugar while beating on medium speed. Add the hot water and beat on medium for about a minute
