Banana Cake


  • 1 1/2 cups bananas, mashed, ripe
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk


  1. Preheat oven to 275°. (I
  2. Grease and flour a 9 × 13 pan. (can’t remember but I think I did it in 8 in pans)
  3. In a small bowl, mix mashed banana with the lemon juice; set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  5. In a large bowl, cream 3/4 cup butter and 2 cups sugar until light and fluffy.
  6. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then stir in 2 tsp vanilla.
  7. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk.
  8. Stir in banana mixture.
  9. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake in preheated oven for 1 hr or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  10. Remove from oven and place directly into the freezer for 45 minutes. This will make the cake very moist. (skipped this and cake was still very moist)

Recipe calls for cream cheese frosting but I have used all kinds of different filling & frostings with it. I actually baked it at 300 so it took a little less time.

This is very tasty but unfortunately hubby not crazy about banana cake or bread. Which is too bad because I love it and it would be a great way to use the over ripe bananas. I’m sure it’s the same in every home. If you only buy a few, everyone wants them and you run out. You buy a few more and no one eats them and they get brown.
