A fluffy banana cake layered with bright raspberry frosting makes for a show stopping springtime dessert.

Let’s talk cake, people.

This is the time of year when it’s still absurdly cold out, but when your palate begins to crave springtime-y flavors. When you’ve stuffed yourself full of pumpkin this and ginger that, and you just want a lemon cookie or blackberry cheesecake bars. Or cake. Because cake is bae.

To the rescue comes raspberry banana cake, a three-layered banana cake with raspberry frosting. It’s warm and delicious, but with a bright and juicy twist. Plus, it’s PEENK.

There’s just something about cake that I love. Maybe it’s the presentation of layers upon layers of sweet, cakey goodness lathered in frosting. Maybe it’s the face that you can slice it off little by little until you’ve eaten a quarter of it. But you still tell yourself you only ate an eighth.

Can you honestly tell me that you wouldn’t want a bite of this if it was in front of your face right now? I mean literally in front of your face, like an inch away so that the center corner is facing you like that first bite of pizza that somehow tastes better than the entire rest of the pizza?

Run on sentence. I know. Blame it on my sugar high.

Well. . .knock on wood. . .I think we have gotten off pretty easy this winter (it makes up for last year’s torture). But despite the mild winter. . .I am still waiting on pins and needles for spring to come shooting back into my life faster than a bullet train. And this beauty. . .well let’s just say it gives me hope that the bullet train is about ready to enter the station, warding off any and all future snowstorms and frigid temps. A girl can hope and dream, can’t she? 😉

raspberry banana seems overshadowed by strawberry banana, so i’m glad you gave it time in the sun too (: and i love that the recipe only calls for basic ingredients- it’s the perfect straight from the pantry, no need to run to the store cake!
