  • I'm making one for my FIL later today - got the idea from and tweaked it a bit. Mash 4 bananas, mix with 1-2 eggs, a drizzle of oil, and any kind of cake mix - I used a carrot cake mix before and it was amazing. Bake as usual. For the frosting - beat together 8oz cream cheese, 4oz butter (real butter), 2 cups powdered sugar, and a bit of vanilla if you want. Rich but not horridly sweet like most frostings. Sooooo good, and not a sweet cake - yes there's the natural sugar in the bananas, and the sugar in the mix, but it's more rich than sweet.

  • Carrot cake, Fruit-Filled White Cake, pound cake, or a butter cake... if you like one and want directions let me know :)

  • Or if you want something that is truly 100% not sweet - make a meatloaf, and use whipped mashed potatoes for the "frosting". Puree carrots for decorative "frosting" (to write happy birthday, make flowers, etc - other veggies can be used for other colors too).
