Banana Cake

A co worker of mine has brought this cake to us a couple of times and I always LOVE it.  I finally used her recipe and made my own.  It is SO good.  If you're looking for a super moist delicious cake this is the one. 

Banana Cake-Recipe from Betty

2 Egg Yolks
1/2 Cup Butter softened
2 Cups of Sugar
1 Cup of Buttermilk
4 Ripe Bananas cut up
2 Cups of Flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 Egg Whites beaten

Mix egg yolks, butter and sugar with mixer.  Slowly add buttermilk and then the bananas.  Sift in flour, salt and soda.  Combine well.  Fold in 2 beaten egg whites.

Bake in 13x9 inch buttered and floured pan at 350 degrees for about 40 to 45 minutes.


8 oz Cream Cheese
1/4 Cup of Milk
1 to 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar
Combine all ingredients adding milk or sugar depending on desired consistency.  I made it a little on the thin side to smoothly and evenly cover the cake.



  1. Following you now & am making this FOR SURE!!

  2. Hi Lori,

    Bananas are still ridiculously expensive here: $13.00 per kilo (2 pounds). A cyclone flattened the banana plantations in Queensland in Feb and we're still waiting for them to hit reasonable production again. I REALLY miss bananas...

    I'll certainly file this recipe for future use though. Nothing beats a nice slice of cake!

    Have a great day.

  3. I have been looking for a banana cake recipe for two years. My mom has talked about her grandma making one. Each one was a little different than she remembered this one is it. Thank you so much.
