DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Grease and flour two 8" round pans.
  • In a small bowl whisk together flour, soda, and salt.
  • In a large bowl, cream butter, white sugar and brown sugar until fluffy.
  • Beat in eggs one at a time.
  • Mix in bananas*.
  • Add flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk to the creamed mixture.
  • Pour into cake pans.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • While the cake is baking, make frosting: beat butter and cream cheese until smooth, then add powdered sugar and Bourbon- if the amount of booze scares you, add less, or use bourbon flavoring.
  • *Wefreeze overripe bananas- when it's time to use them, we place them in a cup of hot water for just a few minutes, and they slide right out of their peel.
  • Once the cakes cool, frost them- the cake (stacked) is pretty heavy and dense, so don't expect a tall fluffy cake.
  • Stays moist for days if covered properly.
