Banana Sheet Cake

Here’s a tip, leave the cream cheese and butter for the frosting out while you make the cake, that way they will be softened by the time the cake is cooled and ready to frost. This cake is on the sweet side (it is a cake after all). If you are trying to cut sugars, you may want to experiment dropping the sugar in the cake mixture by a half cup and cutting the amount of frosting in half.


1 Preheat the oven to 350F (175C) . In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

2 Beat together in a mixer the butter and sugars. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Mix in the vanilla and mashed bananas.

3 Mix in half of the flour mixture, then the sour cream, then the other half of the flour mixture.

4 Spread batter evenly in a greased 10×15 baking pan. Bake at 350F (175C) for 20 minutes, or until nicely browned and the surface bounces back when you press it with your finger. Cool completely before frosting.

5 To make the frosting, mix all of the ingredients together with an electric mixer. If too stiff to spread, add a teaspoon or two of water. Spread the frosting evenly over the cake and slice to serve.

Yield: Makes 30 pieces.

Apparently Size Doesn’t Matter for Prime Rib "Method X"

This is what our 6-pounder looked like. Would a
20 pounder work as well? Spoiler Alert: Yes.

The most common question after we posted our now famous
“Method X” for making perfect prime rib was “will this work with much bigger,
full-size roasts?”
Since Id only used the method on smaller specimens, I was
hesitant to green-light much larger pieces of beef without having tested it

Well, thanks to Bill in Salt Lake City, we now have visual
proof that this great technique does work on the big boys. Here’s what the
fearless cook had to say:

“Your recipe does indeed work on larger bone-in prime rib roasts. I followed the recipe to the tee, on
three 18 to 21 lb. roasts using three different ovens in three separate ski
condo ovens, all with different thermostats. All came out perfectly. I had 29
very pleased snowmobilers!”

As everyone knows, there are few groups harder to please
than a bunch of starving, probably drunk snowmobilers, so this must have really been
amazing. Below you’ll see pictures of Bill’s fine work, along with the video
showing this easy method. By the way, after seeing the size of Bill’s slices,
if you ever get invited to one of his prime rib dinners, you should
definitely go. Thanks for sharing, Bill!
