Taqueria Victoria's Banana Cake

"This is a recipe I got from my Roping the tastes of Texas cookbook. The recipe originated in a restaurant in 1985 in Victoria Texas. This one is so good it will actually melt in your mouth! Times do not include cooling time."

  1. This cake is very moist and has a great banana flavor. I agree with other reviewers that the 3 cups of sugar is too much, when I make this again, I will cut that by half. Also, the baking time stated is not long enough. I used a Bundt pan and my cake took a little over an hour before it was done. The top was getting too brown, so I covered it with foil and lowered the oven temp. to 325 degrees F. I also added a little vanilla extract to the cake. I would make this cake again.
  2. Substittuted 1 cup plain yogurt and I halved the amount of sugar. Baking time, little over an hour with bundt pan. Very moist. Pecans, chopped gave a nice addition. Really good and easy to make...DizieZoe
  3. Very good banana cake and so easy. Takes very little time. Did not make any adjustments, except it takes longer to bake than 45 minutes. May add English walnuts the next time.
  4. This cake is awesome! I does however require more time to cook than 45 minutes. I added 15, then 10 minutes to just sit in the oven. The edges came out crispy and the inside was like pudding! All the girls loved it at my event. Even the guys here at work want me to make them one. Definitely a keeper.
  5. This cake is extremely moist and delicious! It is the BEST ever! I found, though, that making it in a 2 piece Angel food cake (tube) pan worked out better than a bundt pan. It seemed to cook more thoroughly. In the Angel food cake pan, I bake it for about 1 hr. 15 mins. to 1 hr. 25 mins. or until toothpick comes out almost clean. I also add raisins--about 1 1/2 cups--to the batter. Sifting powdered sugar over the top of the cake when cooled, is perfect! The cake is sweet enough as it is. I thought I had a great banana cake recipe from my Mom before a friend shared this recipe with me, but I was WRONG! Sorry, Mom!


  1. This recipe is easy and cake turns out great, light and fluffy. Substitute sour cream with yogurt, used 1/2 tsp soda, 11/2 cup sugar with 1/2 tsp baking powder. Cake raise to a slight dome and cracked slightly when baked.
