Spiced Banana Cake

Teresa H


The added nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves makes this cake nothing like a typical banana cake. It's moist and delicious and has been a favorite for years.

How to Make Spiced Banana Cake


  1. Spray a 9x13 pan with oil (I prefer glass). I have also sprinkled the pan with sugar to create a crust for the bread before if you want. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Stir together dry ingredients and set aside. Cream oil and sugar in a mixer. Add eggs until combined. Stir in mashed bananas until combined.
  3. Alternate dry ingredients and milk into the banana mixture until combined.
  4. Pour into the prepared 9x13 pan. Bake for approx. 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
