Superb Best Ever Banana Cake (with Cream Cheese Frosting)

Ok, ok …after I posted pic of my first ever Superb Best Ever Banana Cake I’ve been inundated with requests for the recipe so I’m blogging the recipe here now than later so that everyone could share and enjoy a truly moist & fluffy Banana Cake … finally, I can now say my quest in search for THE Banana Cake recipe is over … I’ve found it and here it is!!! 😉

This is definitely THE Banana Cake for moi and I so luuuurve it… we like the cake as it is hence no frosting but I’ve included optional Cream Cheese Frosting recipe for those who prefer with frosting 😉

RECIPE

Ingredients, for the Cake:

 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

Ingredients, for the Frosting: 

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 1/2 cups icing sugar 

chopped walnuts for ganish, optional

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 275°F
  • 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
  • eat in 1 teaspoon vanilla.
  • Add icing sugar and beat on low speed until combined, then on high speed until frosting is smooth.
  • Spread on cooled cake
  • Sprinkle chopped walnuts over top of the frosting, if desired.

Tuck in with your favourite cuppa 🙂
