Serving Size: serves 4
Ingredients
1.    1/2 cup butter
2.    1 1/2 cups sugar
3.    2 large eggs, beaten
4.    2 cups flour, sifted
5.    1/2 teaspoon salt
6.    1/4 teaspoon baking powder
7.    1/2 cup milk
8.    
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
9.    
3/4 teaspoon baking soda (add to pureed bananas)
10.    
3 pureed bananas, very ripe

Cream Cheese Frosting:

1.    1/2 stick butter, softened
2.    8 oz. cream cheese, softened
3.    1 box powdered sugar (1 lb.)
4.    
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

1.    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9×13″ baking pan or two 9″ layer cake pans.
2.    Cream butter, sugar and eggs. Sift flour several times, then add the salt and baking powder to the flour.
3.    To the creamed butter mixture, add the milk and flour (alternating, beginning and ending with flour).
4.    Add vanilla and mashed bananas (with the baking soda added to the bananas) to this mixture.
5.    Bake layer cakes (9″) for 25-30 minutes, oblong (9×13″) for 35-40 minutes.

Frosting Directions:

1.    Mix cream cheese and butter until smooth, add sugar and vanilla and blend well. Spread on cooled cake.

Tips

1.    One of the tricks for perfect banana cake is to use really ripe bananas – the sugar content increases as they ripen, making them sweeter, and of course they are softer and easier to mash so they break down more easily in the cake batter.

2.    The baking soda in the recipe makes sure your banana cake comes out nice and light, and also breaks down the banana fully
