Spreading the New Year Cheer!

When most people are baking for the holidays, I'm finishing last minute holiday crafting. And after a whirlwind of crafting I never, ever feel like baking during December. But once the world calms down a bit I begin to get the baking itch. I made a banana chocolate chip cake with a cream cheese frosting, I'll be honest I wasn't too pleased with the recipe. I mean it was good but not worth a blog post. Ah well. I'm sure there will be other baking itches in my future. One of the benefits of being a SAHM is that I was able to deliver them to my friends' doorsteps where they were greeted with a tasty surprise after a long day of work.

A friend of mine made me what she called an 'Elvis' cake for my birthday last year-- a banana cake with peanut butter frosting. It was one of those round, two-layered cakes-- and in the frosting in the middle, she mixed in mini-chocolate chips and sprinkled more on the top. Oh. My. Lord. It was the best thing I've ever put in my mouth. Ever. (I'm still waiting on the recipe... but perhaps that's a good thing, because I think I'd weigh 500 pounds if I knew how to make it myself!!)
