How to Make Gone Banana's & Apple Oatmeal Cake


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour and 9 x 13 pan. Set aside.

    Pour boiling water over oats in a bowl. Leave sit for 20 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter with sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add oats, buttermilk and smashed banana. Blend well.

    Add eggs and vanilla. Beat to incorporate.
  3. Sift flour with baking soda, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Add to the batter and stir just until dry ingredients are no longer visible. Stir in apples.
  4. Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until a pick comes out clean.
  5. Remove cake from oven. Cool completely in pan.
  6. While cake cools, make frosting.

    Beat cream cheese with butter until smooth and creamy. Add milk, vanilla and powdered sugar. Beat until frosting is smooth and spreadable.

    Frost cake and enjoy! I frost as I serve.
