This Banana Cake is really delicious! The flavor of the banana really comes through. I used a Milk Chocolate Frosting, which I purchased at Aldi's, to frost the cake. I bet their cream cheese frosting, as well as their vanilla and regular chocolate frosting, would be delicious on this cake as well.

    Add the sour milk and mashed bananas to the batter. Beat this together well.

    Grease and flout the inside of a 9x13-inch cake pan. (I used Crisco All-Vegetable Shortening to coat the inside of the pan.)

    Bake the cake in a 350°F oven for 30 minutes.

    Allow the cake to cool, then frost the cake. (I frosted the cake with Baker's Corner Milk Chocolate Rich & Ready Frosting. But you could frost the cake with either a vanilla frosting, or cream cheese frosting, or Baker's Corner Chocolate Frosting.

    After I frosted the cake, I topped the cake with chopped pecans. Lightly pressing the chopped pecans into the frosting. I did refrigerate this cake, but I did not cover the cake while it's in the refrigerator.

    *Note: To make sour milk, I added 1 Tablespoon of 5% white vinegar to an 8-ounce glass measuring cup. I then poured the 2% milk up to the 3/4 cup mark. Let this sit for 5 minutes, then add the remaining ingredients.
