Cinnamon Banana Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting


Imagine combining the flavors of cinnamon rolls and banana bread.
Can you taste the cinnamon, banana and cream cheese frosting all mixed together?
Are you drooling yet?

That is the flavor of this cake...
Cinnamon Banana Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting!

This recipe was inspired by a bag of cinnamon chips in my pantry.
I started brainstorming new ways to use them and came up with this fantastic combination.

The cinnamon chips really add a kick of flavor to the banana cake,
and the (seriously yummy!) cinnamon cream cheese frosting is the perfect way to top it off.

All you banana bread and cinnamon roll fans are going to LOVE this cake!
