This cake is always a little different texture due to the ripeness of the bananas, but always good and so very moist! This cake won a Best of Cake Category Blue Ribbon for me at our annual County Farm Fair in 2006. This is a favorite of my family. A good way to use bananas that are too ripe to eat!

How To Make banana cream cake

  • 1
    Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • 2
    Mash bananas in a small bowl, set aside
  • 3
    Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl until fluffy, about 3-5 minutes.
  • 4
    Add the eggs, beat another minute. Mix in the sour cream and vanilla until well combined.
  • 5
    Add the dry ingredients alternately with the bananas, mixing well after each addition. The last addition should be the bananas. Batter will be thick and creamy.

  • 7
    Bake in a 350 degree oven for at least 30-40 minutes. Touch the center for springback or use a toothpick to test for doneness. The cake will not raise high. It is a moist cake.

    Let cool completely before frosting with cream cheese frosting. Refrigerate and serve, storing leftover cake in the refrigerator.
  • 9
    TO MAKE FROSTING: Beat the butter and the cream cheese together until smooth and creamy. Add the vanilla. Add 10xx sugar one cup at a time until smooth. Frost on cooled cake.
