    Hi is that an icing over cake as well and can I use white wine vinegar thank you!!

    • admin 09/19/2016, 6:09 pm Link Reply

      Hi Lisa.. White vinegar is just fine. The icing on top is just powdered sugar/milk. It’s just for decor and really doesn’t add flavor☺☺.. Enjoy..

    Valusha, Thank you for another great recipe! I tried to adhere to the recipe guidelines, but still made a few changes. I omitted cinnamon, added b. soda to the sour cream and vinegar for activation, cut b.powder to only a tsp, replaced c. chips with nuttela (because that’s what I had) and added toasted finely chopped walnuts. It was over the top delicious! My little one said that this recipe definitely going into the recipe book! Thank you for your wonderful recipe!!!!! Oh, the nuttela was made on top of c. cheese later. 🙂

      Thank you Tonya. You version sounds absolutely delicious. We love Nutella as well, will definitely give that a try.. Thanks for sharing .

      Sorry, Valechka, for confusion, I want to clearify: I first put 1/2 of the batter first, then cream cheese, then nutella, (swirled slightly with a long teaspoon handle into the batter and then added the rest of the batter. 🙂 I just remembered that I only had 3 bannanas, and it worked. Thank you again for your hard work and a very yummy recipe!
