Vitalicious Chocolate-Banana Marbled Brownie Cake

5 WWPP Posted by 5 years ago 7 Comments

It’s my birthday and I HAD to bake a cake.

Just had to.

Of course I can’t bake a “normal” cake because that would be too easy and too, well, full of calories. So I made myself a fun marbled cake using my favorite baking mixes from Vitalicious.

Vitalicious Chocolate-Banana Marbled Brownie Cake - the mixes

Now, don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against “normal” cakes. I eat them all the time BUT I’m coming off a very indulgent vacation and I live with a man who doesn’t eat baked goods unless they come in shrink wrap. SO when I bake it’s got to be something I don’t mind eating mostly by myself and believe me, I don’t mind eating this cake mostly by myself. (Although Little Guy is doing some damage!)

Vitalicious Chocolate-Banana Marbled Brownie CakeI made this combination before (although I changed it up a little this time) in a video with Little Guy who still loves it. He helped me again yesterday. Here’s what we did…

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Spray an 11×9 baking dish with non-stick spray.

Separate the egg whites, 2 in one bowl and 3 in the other.

In the bowl with 3 egg whites add the mashed banana an 1 cup of water. Whisk until frothy.

In the bowl with 2 egg whites add 1 1/4 cups of water and whisk until frothy.

Add the Banana Nut mix to the bowl with the 3 egg whites and banana. Add the brownie mix to the bowl with the 2 egg whites.

Mix each bowl to make the batter. Taste when necessary.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

    It looks super yummy. I never find these cake mixes at the store. Do you go to a specialty store for them. The most I've seen are the frozen muffin tops in the freezer section. By the way Happy Birthday
