Banana Cake with Browned Buttercream Frosting

I was leaving town for a week so had to use up my 4.5 bananas.  I decided to make my first banana cake and made it with a twist.  I added dark chocolate chips and made a browned butter frosting.  I toasted walnuts to layer and top off the cake and added bit o’ toffee brickle in with the toasted walnuts.  This recipe out of my Sweet & Simple Gooseberry Patch Recipe book was a hit!

Browned Butter Frosting 

2 cups powdered sugar 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

1-2 tablespoons of heavy cream or milk

1/2 cup browned butter (re-cooled until solid)

**Adjustments to the cake recipe in book: I reduced the sugar just slightly under 1-2/3 cup and substituted 1/4-1/3 cup of sugar for equal amount of coconut sugar.  I also added 1/4-1/3 cup of Ghiradelli dark chocolate chips to the batter.

If making into three cake pans, reduce the time by about 10 mins.
