Ooh….I’m so Fancy: And I like cake!

***

I’m going to let you in on a little secret.

I don’t cook much…unless I’m trying out  a new Pinterest recipe.

Oh, I’ve had a few Pinterest fails but hey, at least I tried right?

However, I DO bake from time to time and last Sunday as I was napping (I highly recommend this on your day of rest…Just sayin’)…anyway, as I was napping I had a dream…

about CAKE!

I’m not sure if any of you are familiar with the Original Funfetti Icing or not with the little chewy bits of heavenly goodness in it…but they discontinued it.

Y’all this was a sad day for me.

They discontinued it a couple of years ago and I have literally craved it…and then I dream about it.  :)

Good news though!  They announced a few weeks ago that their Original Funfetti Icing is making a come back!

Praise the Lord!

But…yes their is a but….it isn’t available until late July or early August.  So my next favorite?

Fancy Banana Nut Cake

Y’all, this cake is not banana nut bread.  Nope, it doesn’t even have real bananas in it!  I often bake and sell these for fundraisers at our church or ladies functions….but today, I’m going to share my secret recipe.

Oh, not really!  It’s not a secret…it’s probably on the back of a pudding box somewhere!  :)  This cake is SO SO SO simple and yummy and Fancy looking!  Here goes!

Fancy Banana Nut Cake

Ingredients:

1 box of yellow cake mix (mix as directed on box)

1 large box of instant banana pudding mix (dry)

A couple handfuls of chopped pecans (plus some to sprinkle on top when you are finished)

1 container of cream cheese frosting (I whip mine in the mixer to make it fluffier)

Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. (Also a preference because I like mine well done) :)

Once cooled, pipe a little frosting on top and sprinkle on some more pecans!

And here you go! Simple FANCY, huh?
