This is a crazy combination of banana, coffee and chocolate that actually all work together in a moist flavorful cake that makes you glad you let those last couple of bananas turn black on the counter! I think it would also be fantastic with a bit of Kahlua in the frosting! Maybe next time???
1 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons instant coffee
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup mashed bananas (about 2 bananas)
1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
Mix flour, baking powder, salt and instant coffee in a large bowl. Mash the bananas in a small bowl.
Alternately add the flour mixture and bananas to the creamed butter/sugar/eggs.
Stir in chopped nuts.
Spread in a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes or until pick comes out clean in center.
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1 Tablespoon softened butter
Mix powdered sugar and baking cocoa in a large bowl. Add butter. Mix with electric beater, slowly adding milk, until it is spreading consistency.
