A Blonde Texas Sheet Cake aka Banana Sheet Cake
This time of year I’m sort of chocolate-d out, if that’s even possible, so I wanted to make a dessert that reminded me of summer. If you love yummy banana desserts this banana sheet cake is a must try! It’s not hard to make, it’s moist, tastes delicious and will serve a crowd which makes it perfect for pot lucks or dinner parties. I was a little worried about making the Browned Butter Frosting since I had never made it before but it was super easy and I made a video so you can see for yourself.
