  • Cake: preheat oven to 350°; beat butter and sugars at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy.
  • Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until blended after each addition.

  • Stir in the mashed bananas and vanilla.
  • Pour batter into 3 (8 inch) round cake pans coated with cooking spray for baking.
