Carrot Banana Bread Cake

I am all about making non-conventional food, so when I came across this carrot banana bread cake recipe I was extremely excited. This recipe is easy, I didn’t have to buy anything extra, we had all these ingredients in the pantry! (Always a plus when you don’t have to make a trip to the store.), and it is the best mash up of banana bread and carrot cake. This recipe is NOT mine, I am always on Pinterest and I came across this from http://www.ambitiouskitchen.com I will give credit where credit is due, so thanks Monique!

Ingredients:

  • 2 mashed bananas
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups of chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup of quick oats
  • 2 tablespoons of applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup of pecans
  • 4 ounces of cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup of almond milk

Seriously this is so easy.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, while that is happening get all your ingredients ready. Simply mix your flour, oats, baking soda and powder, cinnamon and salt together. In another bowl mix together your bananas, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, applesauce, almond milk and carrots. Add all your ingredients together (wet & dry) and fold in about half those pecans. You can use a bread loaf pan, I actually didn’t have one so I just used the pan I usually use for brownies. Once your ingredients are ready and your oven is heated, prepare your pan, I coated mine with coconut oil, and pour your mixture in there and pop it into the oven. It took my bread about 35 minutes to cook completely. But while that was cooking I got my frosting ready. This was honestly my favorite part, I LOVE cream cheese frosting. For this part you just beat all of your frosting ingredients, cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla and cinnamon and your done with that! Easy right?

Once your bread is done, let it cool before adding your frosting on top (So it doesn’t melt all over the place). When it is cool and you added your frosting throw some chopped pecans on top!
