Banana Nut Roll

I promised this to one of my readers awhile back and never got around to posting it because I lost the recipe. I got it from our pastor's wife and she had hand-written the entire thing for me and I didn't have the heart to ask for it again! I was going through a box of papers yesterday and found it! So here it is....

3/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
Dash of salt
1 tsp. lemon juice
2/3 c. mashed bananas
1 c. pecans, chopped

Mix together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and sugar. Add eggs, salt, lemon juice, bananas and pecans. Pour batter into greased cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. When done, flip onto dish towel sprinkled with powdered sugar. Roll up into towel and place in refrigerator to chill. Unroll when chilled and spread with filling.

1 c. powdered sugar
1/2 stick softened butter
3 oz. cream cheese or more ( I use the whole 8 oz. block)
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix all ingredients together until smooth and spread on baked roll. Re-roll, place in aluminum foil and chill before slicing to serve.

This recipe is a lot like the Pumpkin Roll recipe. It's hard for me to pick which is my favorite. If someone asks me which I like better I always answer, "Whichever I'm eating at the time!"
