Bananas Foster Frosting

Bananas blend with cinnamon and brown sugar in this rich and delicious frosting.


1/2 cup banana, mashed (about 1 large banana)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup Challenge unsalted butter
4 cups powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons dark rum (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Mash banana in a small bowl with the lemon juice.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter until smooth (1-2 minutes).
Add mashed banana and beat until well incorporated and smooth.
Add powdered sugar, one cup at a time (while slowly mixing).
Add brown sugar, cinnamon, rum and vanilla.
Beat until all ingredients are well incorporated, and frosting is light and fluffy.

This frosting pairs well with all kinds of cake, whoopee pies, or even cookies.

  11. Unless you want your frosting to taste like a fireball, one tablespoon of cinnamon is waaaaaaay to much for this bananas foster frosting recipe. One teaspoon would be too much for too. I’m guessing a 1/4 teaspoon would be plenty for this recipe..

    • Hi Laura, Have you given the recipe a try? The recipe is listed just as it’s printed in Frostings, by Courtney Whitmore. I have not made the recipe yet, but Courtney is a well respected author. It does seem a bit heavy handed with the cinnamon, so starting with a teaspoon and then going from there might be a good idea.
