READY IN
1 hr
Heat oven to 350° F. Grease a 9 inch square baking pan.

Beat together sugar, bananas and oil; add eggs, beating well after each addition.

Add flour, baking powder, salt, soda, cinnamon and cloves; mix well. Stir in oats and carrots.

Pour into prepared pan, sprinkle with nuts, if desired. Bake 40-45 minutes or until done.

NOTE: You can double the recipe for a 9x13-inch pan and then you will have some batter left over for cupcakes or small loaf.

For frosting, beat butter and cream cheese until smooth, add 1 smashed banana. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. If it is too thick for spreading, add another banana or a little milk. Sprinkle nuts over the top, if desired.

"I made a few adjustments to this recipe..I did not use oats instead I used blueberries n I also replaced white sugar for dark brown sugar as well as butter for the oil. I put plenty of pecans n the cake n poured out n a Bundt pan. It came out really good n moist. I'de definitely make this again!!"

"My family is big into carrot cake, so I tried this one out. It's a very dense cake, but even with the oats and banana it tasted very similar to the one I make normally. The cream cheese frosting with the banana was super sweet! We had more than enough, I would half this if not quarter it."
