Has anyone had any experience with adding fresh bananas to your buttercream frosting? I have some extra ripe bananas and was going to add some to the cake mix and was wondering if I could add some to the frosting, too. Or is that too much banana flavorings? Is there a better flavor for the frosting?

I haven't tried adding bananas to BC, but it sounds yummy. I usually use cream cheese icing on banana cake--that's really good if you want to try a different flavor. (Hopefully someone else can help you better!)

I would be more prone to add banana extract/flavoring. I think it would be a texture thing for me with real bananas. As far as icing to compliment banana cake...vanilla, cream cheese, or cinnamon.

Here is a recipe for banana frosting in the recipe section using bananas. It has 5 stars:

Thanks for the replies. I tried making the 5 star banana frosting that was recommended, but it didn't come out right. Is it because I halved the recipe? It still looks delicious, but it looks more like it could be used as a banana filling, not frosting. It has the consistency of jelly. Any advice on what I did wrong?
