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.
