I got this recipe out of the Kraft Foods magazine some time ago but finally got around to trying it out last night. WOW! Banana cakes are always moist and nice with cream cheese frosting but this blows all other banana cakes out of the water. It is moist but light and delicious.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat the first five ingredients with a mixer on low speed until moistened. Scrape the bowl and beat on medium speed for two minutes. Pour into greased and floured 9x13 pan. Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely.
Beat cream cheese and butter together, gradually beat in the sugar and the vanilla. Frost cooled cake and sprinkle with walnuts if you desire.
This cake can be made as a layer cake as well and it probably would be best to keep it refrigerated.
