Banana Cake Tips and Tricks
Banana cake is such a great old fashioned dessert. Whether you are making our easy banana dump cake or whipping up an elegant cake from scratch, we think you'll enjoy these tips and tricks!
What's the difference between banana cake and banana bread?
Banana cake has a lighter, springier texture than banana bread. As the name suggests, the texture of banana cake is closer to a cake than to a quick bread. Banana bread is denser than banana cake, and it's easier to cut into bread-like slices. It holds together better and is often less sweet.
If this doesn't seem like a big difference, then you are correct! Banana bread and banana cake are very similar. Apart from texture, the only other significant difference is in how they are baked and served. Banana cake is usually baked in a cake pan and topped with frosting. Banana bread is usually baked in a loaf pan and served without frosting.
Although, we certainly won't tell if you want to slather a layer of cream cheese frosting on top of a slice of banana bread. It sounds like a genius idea, actually.
How do you make cream cheese frosting?
This banana bread mix cake is delicious without frosting, but we certainly don't see anything wrong with adding some! We have a fantastic recipe for cream cheese frosting right here on RecipeLion. Check it out here!
