Carrot Pineapple Banana Loaf Cake , thats a mouthful, but a damn good mouthful if I do say so myself. Truly this was a hit. So freaking moist and delicious. Wow.

I have a bit of a banana bread obsession, you may have noticed with my Peaches & Cream Banana Bread or my Strawberry Banana Bread or my Bananas Foster Banana Bread.

While I would love to call this a banana bread, which it is, it is ultimately more like a loaf cake. As much as I want convince myself this is a perfect breakfast I just can’t. So afternoon snack or dessert works for me 😉

 

 

As Easter approaches I start to question what desserts to make. An event where I can make multiple desserts and no one can complain. Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, Sunday night dinner, any excuse for an array of desserts. Last Easter I made some of these recipes here Carrot Layer Cake and Coffee Cheesecake with Chocolate Ganache.

Back to this beaut.

Being that it is a loaf cake/ banana bread it is super easy to make. In a large bowl mix together the wet ingredients and sugar and then fold in the dry ingredients. BAM. OF course the hardest part is waiting for the loaf to cool to then be smothered in cream cheese frosting.

This frosting has buttermilk powder in it, I think it gives such a nice tang, but if you don’t have any don’t worry.

It also satisfies your carrot cake craving which everyone has around Easter!

 

I hope you enjoy this gorgeous Carrot Pineapple Banana Loaf Cake as much as I did!
