Picture a Day #126 – Happy Birthday Cake

Sometimes adults need yummy birthday cakes. Before I went to visit my daughter for her birthday, I decided to make my Rocky Road Cake from last December again, but I used a different recipe, and gave it a twist. This cake has a distinct flavor of bananas, spice, and chocolate!

Banana Rocky Road Cake

Preheat  oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 9 inch round pans.

In large bowl, mix together 2 cups sugar, 1-3/4 cups unbleached wheat flour. 3/4 cup cocoa powder, 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon each cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice.

Add 2 eggs, 2 mashed bananas, 1/2 cup milk, and 1/4 cup oil and beat 2 minutes.

Stir in 1 cup walnuts, 1 cup chocolate chips, 3 cups mini marshmallows, and 1 cup boiling water. Batter will be thin.

Pour into pans, distributing marshmallows evenly, and bake 40-45 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool and frost as desired.

Happy Birthday, Katie!
