Ingredients

CAKE

1 1/2 stick
butter (softened)
1 c
pure maple syrup
3 large
eggs
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract
2 3/4 c
all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1/4 tsp
salt
1 c
mashed bananas (2 large or 3 med)
3/4 c
buttermilk

FROSTING

8 oz
cream cheese
1/2 c
butter (softened)
3 Tbsp
maple syrup
1/2 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1 c
walnuts (chopped)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the oven to 350°. Prepare a 13x9 baking dish with butter and a light dusting of flour.
2
In the bowl of a stand mixer or using a hand beater, cream the butter until soft and light. Gradually add the maple syrup and beat on medium speed for 5 minutes more, or until very light. The butter and maple syrup may separate slightly. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla.
3
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the butter mixture along with the milk and bananas. Beat on low speed just until combined.
4
Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
5
After cake is completely cooled in a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the butter, maple syrup, and vanilla and beat until smooth. Frost cake and garnish with walnuts.
