Equipment

  • 9 x 13 baking pan
  • Small bowl
  • Medium bowl
  • Large bowl

Ingredients
  

For the cake:

  • 1 ½ cups bananas mashed, ripe
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup butter softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk

For the frosting:

  • ½ cup butter softened
  • 1 8 ounce packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 ½ cups confectioner's sugar

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Grease and flour a 9 x 13 pan.
  • In a small bowl, mix mashed banana with the lemon juice; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream ¾ cup butter and 2 cups sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in eggs, one at a time, then stir in 2 teaspoon vanilla.
  • Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk.
  • Stir in banana mixture.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and bake in preheated oven a until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. I used a glass 9x12 pan and baked for 55 minutes. Your baking time could vary. Check for doneness at 50 minutes. Mine took 55 minutes in a glass pan.
  • Remove from oven and place directly into the freezer for 45 minutes or until cooled. This will make the cake very moist.
  • For the frosting, cream the butter and cream cheese until smooth.
  • Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla.
  • Add confectioner's sugar and beat on low-speed until combined, then on high-speed until frosting is smooth.
  • Spread on cooled cake.
