1-2 Tbsp milk
1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract
1. Heat oven to 350 and grease a large square cake pan (like 12×18). If you do not have a 12×18 pan, a 9×13 will work. Just cut all the ingredients in half.

3. Next add pineapple, smashed bananas, cinnamon, salt, and pecans.
4. Mix all this together well.

6. For frosting, add cream cheese to mixing bowl. Add butter, confectioners sugar, and vanilla. Mix well.
7. Add milk, a little a the time, to get the consistency you want it to be.
8. Then frost cake after it cools and enjoy.
