Didn't like it, but then...

Lucille

I bought several containers of commercial cake frosting. I tried one on a cake and didn't much care for it. Today I was planning to bake banana bread and saw one of the frosting containers sitting in the pantry. Basically frosting is fat and sugar, so instead of the fat and sugar in the bread recipe I stirred in the can of frosting. It came out of the oven an hour ago. I sprinkled a little powdered sugar on top and it is just amazing. I keep on going back for another nibble...

Sometimes it pays to be some venturesome, doesn't it, lucille ... and all?

I would have absolutely no clue on how much to use as the substitute. The whole can? Half?

I used the entire can of cream cheese frosting, plus about two tablespoons of powdered sugar on top afterwards.

I don't think I've ever bought frosting in a can, cake frosting is so quick and easy to make from scratch.

Good idea. Once in a while I use canned icing. It is better if you add a little vanilla and whip it with your mixer.

Wow, Lucille, the thought would never occur to me, either. I was sure you were going to tell us something very weird came out of the oven. Kudos to you!

That's really an interesting idea. I don't keep them around but the other day I tried a can of the sugar free frosting. Surprisingly tasty. I just had a hankering for sandwich cookies but have been good about avoiding sugar and want to keep it up. You've given me ideas for substituting in other ways. Thanks for the idea. Glad it worked well for you.
