This is the best ever banana cake. It is so moist and has a lot of banana flavour, made even better by adding cream cheese frosting. It is dangerous for me to have this cake in the house because I cannot pass it without cutting off a little bite. I also like to keep this one in the fridge, I like it better cold. You can use the frosting or if you prefer more of a snacking cake for
breakfast mid-morning snack, it is also very good with out the frosting.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 & 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups four
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 medium bananas, mashed (1 cup)
Cream butter and sugar, add eggs and mix to incorporate
Add in sour cream and vanilla, mix
Combine flour baking soda and salt, gradually add this to the creamed mixture
Mix until combine into a batter
Add in the banana and mix until combined
Pour batter into a 9″X13″and bake.
TO prepare the cream cheese frosting:
Take 1 block of cream cheese at room temperature, 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature, 2 tsp vanilla and about 3 cups icing sugar. Mix until combined and creamy smooth. I usually add 2 cups of the icing sugar and them keep adding until it is as sweet as I want it.
Well I got carried away and didn’t take a picture before frosting!
