Best Ever Banana Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting

This is one of, (if not) the BEST banana cake I have ever tasted! Depending on the amount of frosting you like you can decide whether to half the recipe or not. Baking time may vary based on individual ovens.

Ingredients

  • 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 1/8

    cups sugar

  • 3

    large eggs

  • 2

    teaspoons vanilla

  • 1 1/2

    cups buttermilk

  • Frosting

  • 1/2

    cup butter, softened

  • 1

    (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

  • 3 1/2

    cups icing sugar

  • Garnish

  • chopped walnuts

Directions

Preheat oven to 275. 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 3/4 cup butter and 2 1/8 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then stir in 2 tsp vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Stir in banana mixture. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake in preheated oven for one hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven and place directly into the freezer for 45 minutes. This will make the cake very moist. For the frosting, cream the butter and cream cheese until smooth. Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add icing sugar and beat on low speed until combined, then on high speed until frosting is smooth. Spread on cooled cake. Sprinkle chopped walnuts over top of the frosting, if desired.
