This is my "go to" recipe to use over ripe bananas. It is a nice moist cake loaded with banana flavor. It's REALLY tasty when iced with peanut butter icing!

How to Make Moist Banana Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously coat a 9"X13" nonstick baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • 2In a large bowl, mix together (by hand) the margarine, butter and sugar. Mix well. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until fluffy.
  • 3Add the mashed bananas to the margarine mixture and mix well.
  • 4In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • 5Add the flour alternately with the buttermilk, ending with the flour mixture. Mix just until smooth after each addition.
  • 6Transfer to the prepared baking pan. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until cake springs back when tested with fingertip.
  • 7Dust with confectioner's sugar or ice with your favorite frosting. (I like frost with peanut butter icing. Here's the link to the recipe: Moist Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Icing
  • 8TIP: If you don;t have buttermilk substitute a mixture of 3/4 cup whole milk with 1/2 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice added.
