Do you always have apples and bananas on hand that need to be used? I am constantly looking for something to do with over ripe bananas and apples that are about to go bad on me. This cake is quick and easy and your friends and family will love it. Throw it together for dessert or to go with your morning coffee or for the kids to have as a snack with a tall glass of milk. We love this with cream cheese frosting but you could just sprinkle on some powdered sugar or use your favorite icing on this cake.

Cake Recipe:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 cups of grated apples, peel and core before grating
2 large bananas, mashed
1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, melted
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup chopped nuts, Optional (Pecans or Walnuts)


Whisk together flour, brown sugar, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Stir in grated apples, mashed bananas, melted butter, eggs and vanilla extract with spoon. Fold in nuts. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray and pour batter into dish. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 45 to 50 minutes until center tests done. Let cool and frost or sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving. Makes 12 servings. Cream Cheese frosting recipe is below. Enjoy!
