A couple months ago we discussed this pumpkin cake with a brown butter drizzle. A version of that drizzle, which is the shizzle by the way, won me $5000 in the Cooking Light Ultimate Reader Recipe contest .
I called it Browned Butter Pecan Frosting and it was perched atop the moistest (that’s not a word, but neither is shizzle), most wonderful banana cake ever…and it’s even lower in fat that most cakes. The bananas and fat-free buttermilk keep it uber-moist; but it’s roasting your ripe bananas first that really pushes this one over the top.
I promise you’ll love me for this one…and your hips won’t hate me in the morning.
