This morning I really was lost in wanting a bite of fluffy, moist, baked goodness. Nothing like coffee cake warm from the oven on a chilly morning. Add hot coffee and giggly girls, and the morning is complete! I found a recipe so utterly amazing you won't believe it is allergy free! A hint of sunflower butter mixed in with this banana treat takes you back to childhood's peanut butter and banana sanwiches, but all grown up now. It was approved by two of the three giggly girls, and the third ate every last ounce of crunchy sweet topping off the top. Not too shabby. Try it tomorrow, and enjoy fall's finest moments.
Blissful Sunbutter Banana Coffee Cake
2 medium bananas, very ripe
1/3 c creamy sunbutter (up to 1/2 c, if you want more flavor)
3T spectrum shortening, melted
3/4 c warm water
1 box Gluten Free Cake mix (I used 365 GF White Cake Mix)
1/4 c turbinado sugar
Preheat oven to 350. Put bananas in mixing bowl and mix until thoroughly mashed, add sunflower butter and mix until combined. Add melted spectrum and warm water, mix until smooth. Add cake mix and mix well. Pour into greased 9" cake pan. Sprinkle turbinado sugar over top. (You can add a dash or cinnamon here if you want!) Bake 40 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy!
