I Made A Cake

By Nichelle Stephens

Pink velvet banana bread with glaze

I have a Google alert for “red velvet” and one day I will write a book about red velvet cake. First, I have to do a book proposal and a Kickstarter. Last week, I spotted a recipe for Red Velvet Banana Bread. It was a cake mix hack using a red velvet cake and banana. I decided to try my own cake mix hack using one half of Duncan Hines Spring Velvet mix. I used the pink velvet which yielded one 8″ round cake. I added one ripe banana, substituted brewed chai tea for the water and used the rest of the ingredients listed on the box. The cake turned out great. I also made a light confectioner’s sugar glaze made with buttermilk, vanilla extract and lemon zest. It’s a delicious with a morning coffee. It’s banana bread without being overwhelming or dense.
