Jamaica Cake

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Kat in Texas

My mom clipped this out of some magazine eons ago and it was one of the first things I ever learned to bake as a girl. It is still a trusted stand-by for unexpected guests or when I just want something easy and sweet. No mixer and no frosting needed! Great when you first bake it, even better the next day. I usually use 2 bananas, but sometimes use 3 if I want a strong banana flavor.

I have been making this cake for quite some time, and searched on this site to see if there were any variations. While this recipe is the same one I have, it is an EXCELLENT one... so I'm okay with there being no others! :) Something extra that I always do is sprinkle powdered sugar on the top to add a little "pizzaz." I HIGHLY recommend this cake to ANYONE! It is easy, quick, and declicious!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together the sugar, vegetable oil, pecans, flour and bananas.
  2. Stir in the eggs, pineapple (and juice), vanilla, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  3. Mix well but try not to mash the bananas.
  4. Pour into a 9x13 inch pan and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 60 minutes, or until cake tests done.
  5. Can also use a tube or bundt pan, but you'll need to lightly grease and flour those.
