Sweet & Spicy Roasted Chicken Legs



Ingredients
2 pounds skinless chicken legs
½ cup olive oil
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1.5 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon paprika
½ teaspoon salt

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Make sure you remove the skin from your chicken legs if you haven't already done so. Make 3 scores on the meaty section of each chicken leg, & place in a gallon sized ziploc bag. Whisk together the olive oil along with the brown sugar & all the spices. Pour the mixture on top of the chicken in the resealable plastic bag.
Marinate for at least 30 minutes. Place the chicken legs in a 9x13 casserole dish, scores facing up. Bake for 40 minutes.

Best Ever Banana Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting



1 1⁄2 cups bananas, mashed, ripe
2 teaspoons lemon juice
3 cups flour
1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking soda
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
3⁄4 cup butter, softened
2 1⁄8 cups sugar
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1⁄2 cups buttermilk
Frosting

1⁄2 cup butter, softened
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 1⁄2 cups icing sugar
Garnish

chopped walnuts

How to make it: 

Preheat oven to 275°.
Grease and flour a 9 x 13 pan.
In a small bowl, mix mashed banana with the lemon juice; set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
In a large bowl, cream 3/4 cup butter and 2 1/8 cups sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in eggs, one at a time, then stir in 2 tsp vanilla.
Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk.
Stir in banana mixture.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake in preheated oven for one hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Remove from oven and place directly into the freezer for 45 minutes. This will make the cake very moist.
For the frosting, cream the butter and cream cheese until smooth.

Spread on cooled cake.
Sprinkle chopped walnuts over top of the frosting, if desired.
