This is a small snack cake. Good eaten as is, without frosting, but a cream cheese frosting or powdered sugar also good. Also, some chopped pecans or walnuts can be added.

Ingredients

1/2 c
unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c
light brown sugar, packed
1 large
egg
1/4 c
buttermilk
1 tsp
vanilla extract
2
ripe bananas, mashed
1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
salt
1 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp
ground cloves
1/4 tsp
ground nutmeg

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃). Coat a 8-inch round or square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2
In a large mixing bowl, with electric mixer, cream butter and brown sugar. Beat in egg, buttermilk, vanilla, and mashed banana until blended.
3
In a bowl, combine dry ingredients and spices.
4
Mix the dry ingredients into the butter mixture until moistened. Do not overbeat.
5
Pour batter into prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until a wooden skewer poked into middle of cake comes out clean.
6
Cool in pan on wire rack for about 20 minutes. Can be left in pan or inverted onto cake plate.
Can be frosted, but I serve it plain, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or a dollop of vanilla yogurt or drizzle of caramel ice cream topping.
