Banana Coffee Cake


3 ingredients and you've got yourself banana coffee cake!


Sometimes you just have to get crazy and use a box cake mix. Our little one FINALLY lost a top tooth and while we can’t help but secretly giggle at the big hole in her smile or the silly lisp from the missing tooth, we also are so excited for her. There’s nothing better than a kid being so crazy excited about the little things in life. This banana coffee cake was all about celebrating with her.

Have I mentioned I have teeth issues? I mean, before we get to the recipe we should really get this out of the way. You see, I have a fear of breaking my teeth, but recently I’ve discovered that I cannot stand loose teeth or pulling teeth. The family finds it hilarious, I find it foul. She even found it so funny she would twist and turn the darn thing all up in my face while I was pinching my eyes shut and literally gagging.

Who knew, huh? And then the moment comes, she either pulls her own or has Cade do it and oh sweet mercy! I had to leave the room and plug my ears! You guys, I’m a wimp, and teeth are gross. The. End. Actually, fyi this cake was really yummy and she loved getting it with fruit for breakfast as a surprise the next morning. And it’s just a coffee cake mix, 2/3 cup banana (as per the 2/3 cup water instructions) and 1 egg. Easy. Peasy.
