Banana Buttercream Frosting Recipe

These banana buttercream frosting recipes are the perfect accompaniment to banana cake, oatmeal cake with raisins and citrus-flavored cakes. The moistness of the butter helps seal in the flavor of the banana while promoting a light and fluffy frosting that spreads easily and stores well. Because buttercream frostings are rich and sweet, they are the perfect icing for just about any type of cake.

Though it is usually best not to use the same flavor for the frosting as you do for the cake, this particular frosting is an exception. Banana buttercream frosting is the perfect icing for banana cake.
