HOMEMADE BANANA CAKE FROM SCRATCH

Ingredients

1-1/2 cups ripe bananas, mashed
2 tsp lemon juice
3 cups flour
1-1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
2-1/4 cups white sugar
3 large eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups buttermilk*

Directions

Grease and flour a 9x13 pan (or 9" cake pans), and preheat oven to 275 degrees (NOT 375).

Mix the banana and lemon juice in a small bowl and set aside.
In a medium bowl - mix the flour, baking soda and salt, and set this aside also.

In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs - one at a time, and add the vanilla. Next, beat the flour mixture alternatively with the buttermilk. Finally stir in the banana mixture. Pour into the 9x13 and place in the preheated oven.

NOTE: Baking times vary depending on your oven. This cake may take anywhere from 1 hour to 1-1/2 hours to bake. It is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Do not over bake. When cake is done, place IMMEDIATELY in the freezer for 45 minutes. Yes, the freezer. This is what makes it really moist.

NOTE:

Some of my recipes call for oil and for most of my life I used canola and vegetable oil as everyone else did.

I have changed to using organic and unrefined coconut oil, and olive oil. Organic butter and ghee is another option. Thanks!

Note: the main villains of hydrogenated oils that you want to stay away from are corn oil, soybean oil, cottonseed oil and canola oil.
