2 tsp
lime juice
3 c

1 1/2 tsp

1/2 tsp

3/4 c

2 1/8 c

3

1 1/2 c

1 1/2 Tbsp

1 pkg
cream cheese
1 1/2- 2 c

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 275'
2Mash banana to a purée, making sure there are no chunks. Add lime juice and set aside.
3Mix cake flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
4Cream butter and sugar together until crumbly and fluffy.
5Beat in eggs one at a time to sugar and butter mixture. Add vanilla. Set aside.
6Add vinegar to milk and let set for about a minute. Begin to add milk mixture and flour mixture to the creamed butter mixture, alternating between milk and flour.
7Add bananas to cake mixture and blend well
8Spray three 9" cake pans. Pour into pans and bake for 45 minutes or until cake tester comes clean.
9To make frosting, cream butter and cream cheese together until well blended. Add vanilla.
10Stir in powdered sugar. If you're wanting to frost the whole cake, add an extra cup of sugar to the mixture.
11Once the cake is done baking, remove from oven and let set for 10 minutes then place in freezer for 35-40 minutes. I heard this is suppose to help it maintain a moist texture. After removing from the freezer, frost as desired
