Just wanted to share the cake I made for Valentine’s Day.  It is the Banana Refrigerator Cake from RHC. I substituted the whole eggs with egg whites and substituted the sour cream with fat-free Greek yogurt.  I omitted the cream cheese in the frosting and instead made it with Vegan margarine, soy milk, vanilla and confectioner’s sugar.

The base cake was frozen prior to frosting. When I did frost the cake, I was able to taste a bit of the cake top and the banana flavor had been intensified.

This cake has Zero mg/ cholesterol. I had a big, fat piece.  tongue wink

Thank you Anne! It is really delicious! I just love the frosting too. This cake has full flavor.  I’m starting to think it is hard, real hard, to mess-up Rose’s recipes.

Ann, did you ever solve your cake-rising problem? Maybe I missed a message about the resolution.
