Banana Cream Frosting Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 3)
Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2005
I made this recipe and it was very tasty but a little runny. I read the prior reviews and thought I could stabilize with cream of tartar however that didn't work. Next time I'll cut down on the milk and use the cream of tartar...I'll let everyone know my results!

This is a great little recipe if you want a quick, simple frosting/filling. I added sliced bananas to the middle of a devil's food chocolate cake along with this filling, turned out great. It doesn't make the prettiest cake, just the tastiest!

I reduced the amount of milk to 1/2 cup like other reviewers suggested. It still came out a little more runny than I preferred, but my guests loved it. I baked two 8-inch round devil's food cakes. Rather than frosting it completelt, I "sandwiched" the filling between the two layers, added a dollop on top, and drizzled it with a little chocolate sauce. (I left the sides unfrosted.) It turned out very pretty.

I used this recipe to top my son's cupcakes for his second birthday. I cut the milk in half as suggested and left out the rum, using about 2 teaspoons of vanilla instead. I also refrigerated the frosting until right before serving so it would remain thick enough not to slide off the cupcakes. My husband loved the frosting as did my son.

Well it tasted great but much to runny. I dont have a food processor I used a hand mixer and still couldn't get it thick. I think like the other lady, the milk should be cut down to 1/2 cup.I have another recipe that calls for a 12 oz tub of cool whip with only 1/2 cup milk and 3 oz cream chease and 1 pudding mix. So how does this one get a full cup of milk? I'll keep working on it because it did taste good. Kept it in the fridge overnight so it wouldn't run. and it was ok then.

Tastes like banana cream pie!! I was so glad to have found this recipe since all other frosting/icing recipes called for confectioners sugar, which I didn't have at the time. I used it on the Banana Cake II recipe, to which I added chocolate chips, and it was wonderful! Tips: I used rum extract instead of straight rum. A large wisk makes "folding in" very easy. Quick and easy to make. Thanks Cyndi!

I loved how easy this was. I made it for my husbands birthday cake and it was awesome! I left out the rum and added vanilla and I think maybe cutting down on the milk maybe to 3/4 cup or maybe 1/2 cup. I would like it a little thicker. But overall it was real tasty!
