Amazing Banana Nut Roll

Better Homes and Gardens

The first cakes can be traced back thousands of years to the Middle East, where they were flat baked mixtures of coarsely ground grain and water. Later, honey and sugar became standard ingredients, then sweet spices such as cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. When cakes made their way to Europe, they evolved to the status of sweetened breads, leavened with yeast. During the 17th century cakes took on the rich, delicate qualities familiar today. This fanciful cake recipe has cream cheese frosting rolled inside; it's quite easy to make.
