To those who may think there is not enough banana in it, there is a simple solution. Add more banana. I had to say that because people complain about these sort of things a lot. Read More

made just as recipe indicated, came out runny, added another cup and half of powdered sugar still way too thin to frost. Added cocoa powder to thicken and it was usable. I threw away the recipe, if this needed special mixing instructions it should be included in recipe. Read More

Love this recipe. However I did add in some vanilla and an 8 ounce block of cream cheese to mine and it was amazing. Thank you for posting this. Read More

Like this recipe. It has only a slight taste of banana. The consitance was thin but after I had refidgerated it for a while it was fine. The next time I make this I will whip the butter first before I had the banana and lemon juice. Should mix better also if I can find some banana extra will add as well to bump up the banana taste.

I read people's reviews that the frosting was more of a glaze and had that experience myself. However I just added an extra cup of powdered sugar and it was great. It spread easily and set up nice and firm. I used it to frost a banana chocolate cake. I really struggle to understand people who say the frosting is too sweet. It's frosting. It's made of sugar. Of course it's sweet! If you want something that you can better control the sweetness go with something cream cheese-based. Read More

Perfect for the banana cake I’d made. Didn’t need a full batch, but was easy to cut in half. Loved it just as written! Read More

Great recipe! I did add some vanilla and 3 TBSP of cocoa powder and used less sugar (judging the consistency as I mixed it). Read More

Mine never thickened up and was more like a glaze then frosting. Will try again and maybe not let me bananas get as ripe. The flavor was good though and everyone enjoyed what little did stay on the cupcakes. Read More
