“This is the best Banana cake that you will ever have! I got this from Jennifer Parks. We buy bananas and just wait for them to ripen so we can make this.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Batter: In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar.
  2. Add eggs, sour cream and vanilla.
  3. In separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture.
  4. Stir in bananas (I squish mine in my hand as I put it in).
  5. Spread in a greased cookie sheet, 17 x 12 x 1 inch baking pan.
  6. Bake at 350 for 20- 25 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean from the middle.
  7. Cool before frosting. Store in fridge.
  8. Frosting: In mixing bowl beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla.
  9. Gradually beat in enough powder sugar to achieve desired consistency. After 2 cups of powdered sugar I start tasting to see when it seems balanced with sugar and cream cheese.
