Homemade Banana Cake
with Cream Cheese Frosting


EASY BANANA CAKE FROM SCRATCH

Ingredients

1-1/2 cups ripe bananas, mashed
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
3 cups all purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
2-1/4 cups white granulated 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.
