Nowadays you can see I keep baking banana cake.There are two reason why I do that.One of the reason is almost every week,I have extra ripe brown color banana leftover sitting on my kitchen table.My daughter and hubby refused to eat banana which has brown dots on the skin.Instead of trashing away I might as well baking it!!(recycled)The reason numbers two is since I packed sandwich for hubby to bring to work ,I might as well pack a piece of desert(cake)for him.This has become a everyday ritual when I packed his meal.This banana cake I infused with some cream cheese and top with some streusel which taste cheesy and flaky.
