super moist and delicious banana cake

October 24, 2007 at 1:56 pm 9 comments

1 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened/slightly melted
2 eggs separated
3 very ripe, soft and mushy bananas
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup sour milk (you can make it sour by adding a few drops of white vinegar or lemon juice)

Directions: combine the first list of dry ingredients and set aside. Separate the eggs. Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form (as if you were making meringue) and set aside. In a large bowl, dissolve the baking soda into the milk. Then add the egg yolks and the remaining wet ingredients and mix well. Then combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Last, fold the beaten egg whites into the cake mixture. Spread into the cake pan of your choice. These make great little muffins. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes for a 9 x 13 cake. Less time for smaller cakes or muffins. These taste great plain,but you can also sprinkle with powdered sugar or it’s especially tasty with cream cheese frosting.

Thanks to my sister-in-law, Amy for this yummy recipe.

    I found this recipe on your a couple of years ago and I’ve refused to use any other banana cake recipe since. It’s failsafe, moist, sweet and bursting with the taste of bananas. Yum! Thanks so much for posting this amazing recipe, it has brought me and my family a lot of joy – and perhaps a few extra pounds on the hips 😉

    I tried this recipe but made it low fat and healthier sugar content replace the sugar with pure sugar cane and replace the butter with zero fat vanilla yogurt. Reduce sugar to 11/4 cups. Make sure you do grease the pan with shortening lightly as there is no oil in this now. Still tastes amazing and now you have a no fat recipe and healthy sugar.
