DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F; grease and flour 3 9-inch round cake pans; set pans aside.
  • Prepare banana nut cake: In large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  • Add eggs and oil, and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened; do not beat.
  • Stir in bananas, pecans and vanilla.
  • Divide batter equally among prepared pans.
  • Bake cake 25-28 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of layers comes out clean.
  • Cool layers in pans on wire racks 10 minutes.
  • With small metal spatula or knife, loosen layers from sides of pans; invert onto racks to cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • While layers are cooling, prepare cream cheese frosting: In medium bowl, with mixer on medium speed, blend together cream cheese and butter.
  • Gradually beat in sifted confectioners' sugar, increase speed to medium-high; beat until frosting is light and fluffy, then beat in vanilla.
  • Reserve pecans to sprinkle on frosted cake or, if you like, stir into frosting.
  • Fill and frost cake, using about 1/2 cup frosting between each layer.
