We’ve had a lot of experimenting with recipes going on around here…
I modified a chess bar recipe to use up some bananas and cherries that we had lying around.
The original recipe came from the net: http://www.beaumontinn.com/recipe_chessbar.htm
Beaumont Inn’s Famous Chess Bars – modified
1 Yellow Cake Mix
1 Stick of Butter
1 banana (mashed)
20-30 cherries pitted
8 oz. Cream Cheese
1 pound of confectioner’s sugar (powdered sugar)
Mix egg into cake mix. Melt butter, add to egg mixture. Add mashed banana. Stir until becomes a ball. Pat into greased 12×15 flat pan. Distribute cherries on top of this layer. Put cream cheese in mixer bowl. Beat until smooth. Add 2 eggs and confectioner sugar. Mix until smooth. Pour on top of cherries and cake and bake 30-35 minutes or until light golden brown in color. Bake at 350 degrees.
Cool completely before cutting.
