Banana Cake and Old Fashioned Icing

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by WyomingMoonDust

If you like bananas, you will simply fall for this cake. Better then muffins of bread recipes. Always a hit at the holidays and takes on 45 minutes from start to finish. * note* use the butter, not margarine.

I was also looking for a recipe besides banana bread to make. I had a new Nordicware pan to try out so this was a perfect marriage. Very light and delightful tasting; enjoyed the richness of the sour cream in the recipe. Cakes turned out perfectly and were served for a pre-Easter brunch. I covered them with the thinnest layer of glaze from your powdered sugar and orange juice without the butter. Delicious! Made for Spring PAC 2010.

  2. Icing: as cake is baking bring orange juice and butter to room temperature. add powdered sugar in a mixer. Until its at desired consistency.
