Oatmeal-Banana (Breakfast) Cake with Cinnamon Glaze

for the cake:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup oats (I used old fashioned rolled oats)

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 cup butter, melted

1/2 cup milk

3 eggs

4 large, very ripe bananas, mashed


for the glaze:

1 tablespoon butter, melted

1 1/3 cups powdered sugar

2 tablespoons milk

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Heat your oven to 350, and spray a 9x13 baking pan with non-stick spray.


for the cake:

1. In a medium bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients and mix well. In another medium bowl, the butter, milk, and eggs, and mix well. Add the mashed banana and mix well. Combine the banana mixture with the dry ingredients and mix well.


2. Transfer the batter to the prepared baking pan and spread it evenly. Bake for about 28 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool completely before putting the glaze on top so it doesn't melt and run off the cake and pool at the edges.


for the glaze:

Combine all of the glaze ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk until combined and very smooth. Pour onto the cooled cake and spread it evenly with a spatula. Let the glaze set before cutting for best results.


Makes 20-24 servings.
