It’s Friday and what better way to end a busy week than with a sweet chocolate treat so good you will hope for some mushy bananas all the time.

I love the name Bunalicious Banana Bundt Cake, it sounds yummy, and trust me it is. I had some mushy bananas on my hands, and I didn’t feel like making an ordinary muffin or cake or even loaf, so I thought for a little while, I even asked the hubby what he felt like having me make for him with the bananas, and I didn’t really like his answer, cause it was muffins, but I wanted to compromise so I thought what about a nice caramelized banana oat bundt cake. It has the texture of a muffin on the inside, and the look of a luscious cake on the outside, and did I mention these beauty’s are a great little size to share with someone special, even though you will really just want it all for yourself. I suggest sharing because it not only nice to do, but you don’t want  your guilt radar to sky-rocket. I counted the calories on one of these little bundt cakes myself, so It may not be 100% accurate, but I feel comfortable telling you that it rang in at 386 calories, per bundt, cut that in half when you share with someone and it’s under 200 calories, that’s less than a non satisfying chocolate bar made with who knows what. I know that seems like a lot, but when you look at the size of it, you can see that it really is a small cake, so when I say sharing is caring, it really is, and trust me indulging in half of one of these is plenty to satisfy a sweet tooth craving, and reward yourself for a long week. For an indulging treat this is one to splurge on.
