Mom’s Homemade Banana Cake


2  cups sugar
1 cup butter
4 eggs
6 bananas, mashed (set aside)
4 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla

8 Tablespoons soured milk (add a little vinegar to regular milk to sour)
Mash bananas and set aside.    Mix sugar and butter and whip til creamy.  Add to this the 4 eggs, mix well and then add all the banana mixture. 

Now add the flour a cup at a time and mix well, then add the baking powder, soda and salt.   Finally mix in the vanilla.  The texture will be nice a fluffy and creamy.

Place in the 13 x 9 baking dish, well greased.   Bake in 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes or until the middle springs back to touch or a knife comes clean when inserted into the middle. 
Now the cream cheese frosting.


8      ounces  butter, softened
8  ounces cream cheese, softened
3 ½ cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a large bowl, beat together the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer. With the mixer on low speed, add the powdered sugar a cup at a time until smooth and creamy. Beat in the vanilla. 
Cool cake completely then ice the cake.  Tasty and moist and coming back for more.
