Banana Maple Bacon Cake (Video)

Valentines Day is full of traditions; chocolate candy, chocolate covered strawberries, flowers, hearts, etc. Forget about the traditional Valentines Day, because I’m bringing something new to the table, bananas and bacon! Yep, I am combining these two into a cake for a sweet and savory flavor that will quickly become your new tradition for Valentines, or really, just occasion!

The folks over at Brownings Country Ham helped me bring this recipe to life! I’m sure you will enjoy making it, and eating it, as much as I did!

Take a moment and visit Best Country Cured Ham | Browning’s Country Ham | KY Country Hams. Read their story on how it all began, it’s very interesting! Then, don’t forget to place an order …. tell them Dana sent you!

1 stick real salted sweet cream butter (not margarine)
1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon real vanilla extract

Pre-heat oven to 350°
Melt butter in a 12” iron skillet. Add sugar, half and half and evaporated milk mixture, cocoa and vanilla extract. Using a wire whisk, heat and whisk mixture until sugar is melted and cocoa is thoroughly combined. Turn off heat.
Whisk together flour, sugar, milk and vanilla. Carefully pour evenly over the chocolate mixture.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until there’s not much “jiggle” to the cobbler.
Serve warm with a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream.
