Banana nut pound cake
By Bill Snead cookinman
I used a basic recipe from "Cooking for the Children's Miracle Network" cookbook and doctored it up a bit. It turned out great. Cookbooks are available from JAP member:tiffani ross [tiffani29]
I made this cake again tonight and added a cup of chunky peanut butter in place of the pecans. I had to bake it about 10 minutes longer than before. The picture with the icing is the cake I made tonight.
2 tablespoons of margarine
1 cup of brown sugar (packed)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon pure or 1 tablespoon imitation vanilla flavoring
1 and 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
Melt butter and brown sugar in a small sauce pan until sugar is dissolved. Add milk and salt, cook for 3 minutes stirring constantly. Remove from burner and allow to cool. add vanilla and powdered sugar and beat for two minutes with mixer on low speed. Allow caramel icing to cool in refrigerator until it stiffens up somewhat.
Ice cake after it has cooled down.
