Mom’s Homemade Banana Cake
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
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.
