**I DID bake this (and write this post) yesterday but closed my computer before I remembered to click publish. Oops!
Since I bought a carton of eggnog for those cupcakes I figured I should make the most of it and use it in as much baking as possible.
Sorry this isn't going to be a long post but I'm busier than expected today and barely found time this morning to whip up this banana cake and pop it in the oven!
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a bowl cream together 1 1/4 cup sugar with 1/2 cup butter. Add in 2 eggs. Mash in 3 ripe bananas.
- Stir in 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 cup eggnog. Mix in 2 1/2 cups flour and 1 tsp baking soda. Pour into a lightly greased cake pan and bake for about an hour.
- Let cake cool then drizzle with eggnog icing (see post from a few days ago for the eggnog cupcakes icing) and some chocolate shaving.
