Banana Coffee Cake: It's What's For Breakfast

Last weekend I decided to make Banana Coffee Cake for breakfast.  Unfortunately, I forgot to get butter when I was at the grocery store.  So after a quick search on google I decided to try substituting the butter with applesauce. 

Not only did it work but L and the Girls informed me they liked it better.  So it looks like the change might be permanent.

Banana Coffee Cake
1 cup butter (can substitute 1 cup applesauce)
3 cups sugar (use 2 1/4 cups sugar if using applesauce substitute)
4 eggs
2 tbs vanilla extract
2 cups mashed bananas
3 cups all purpose flour, sifted
1 tbs baking soda
2 cups chopped pecans, optional
Cream butter (applesauce) and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla, mix well.  Stir in bananas.  Add flour and baking soda to creamed mixture and mix until combined.  Fold in pecans.  Pour into well greased and floured bundt pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  

Optional frosting
3 tbs milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Blend all ingredients together until smooth and pour over warm cake.

On another note, look what L brought home for me Monday night!  Yep, that's approximately two pounds of fudge...guess who wasn't out of butter!!
