Kato's Easy Banana Cake

Kato's  Easy Banana Cake created by twissis

This is how I use those leftover black bananas. Sometimes I use the little tiny bananas because they have such an intense flavour. When I'm busy I freeze the bananas just for this cake. This recipe makes great cupcakes that freeze well. I've been making this recipe for 12 years, I hope that you enjoy it as much as we do...

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream the butter, add sugar and eggs.
  • Mix well, add the bananas, nuts and vanilla.
  • Prepare the sour milk by stirring the lemon juice into the milk.
  • Sift the dry ingredients and add them to the banana mixture.
  • Mix in the sour milk gently.
  • Pour into a prepared 9 x 12" pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45 min - 1 hour (until firm in the center).
  • *We find this cake sweet, so I usually just sprinkle icing sugar on top and serve it warm with vanilla bean ice cream.
  • It's also nice with vanilla or chocolate buttercream frosting.
  • If making cupcakes, bake for 15 - 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.

    Made for the FF&F FYC Tag Game - Altho I originally tagged this recipe to use as dessert for a weekend family brunch, I found myself needing a dessert on the Wed B4 the planned brunch & w/little notice. It was easily made as written except I did omit the nuts as DH is diet-restricted for them. My 9 x 12 baking pan was already in use, so I opted to bake this in a 10" rd spring-form pan which proved to be an excellent choice. It was served warm in the morning w/coffee, chilled as a dinner dessert that evening (both dusted w/powdered sugar as you suggested) & was very well-rec'd. Thx for sharing this moist & flavorful recipe w/us.

    This had good banana flavor and stayed moist for days. I made it in a bundt pan and it came out of the pan easily. Yum!
