One of my Favorites....Banana Cake

This is one of my favorite cakes....quick, easy and full of flavor.
What makes this cake easy is you can make with a mixer or even with just a whisk.

Banana Cake

Cakes, Desserts, Fruits

1 cup bananas; mashed
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup margarine; melted
2 medium eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 cups flour

Preheat oven to 350F.

Peel the bananas and mash them with a whisk until they are quite mushy
almost liquid. Cream in the sugar. Add the buttermilk, melted margarine,
eggs and vanilla. Beat until it is smooth and satiny. You may use electric
beaters if you prefer, but a whisk works really well.

Add the salt, baking powder and flour. Mix again until all is lump free and
sort of fluffy. Turn the mixture into a well oiled 9' by 13' rectangular
pan. Bake for about 40 minutes.

The cake is done when it is golden brown, the edges have pulled away from
the sides of the pan, and the top springs back when pressed lightly in the
center. Cool thoroughly and frost with chocolate or vanilla frosting. 
This is a favorite for the lunch box crowd.

I baked this in two 9" round pans at 350F for 28 minutes.   
Since your oven might be different, please check 
as usual with a toothpick to see it comes out clean.  

Today, I frosted with a cream cheese/butter 
confectioner's sugar frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting


8 oz cream cheese; room temp
4 oz butter; room temp
3 cup confectioners sugar
1 ts vanilla

Beat cream cheese and butter together until completely combined.  SLOWLY
add confectioner's sugar while mixer is on low.  Add sugar one half cup at
a time to prevent sugar spatter.

Add vanilla and beat on high until light and fluffy.

Spread immediately since butter will firm up if let to chill.  Makes enough
for one 9 X 13" cake or two 9" round layers.
