Simple & moist! This banana cake is a classic. Use the ripest bananas you can!
What to get:
  • 1.5 cups mashed bananas (very ripe, about 4 small bananas)
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1 cup baker's sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1.75 cups flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ⅔ tsp baking soda
  • ⅛ tsp grd. cinnamon
  • 5 T buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
What to do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Soften butter ahead of time
  3. Mix flour, soda, salt & cinnamon in a separate bowl
  4. In bowl of electric mixer, cream butter & sugar, adding eggs one at a time
  5. Add mashed bananas
  6. Add buttermilk & vanilla, mix 1 minute
  7. Pour batter into loaf pan
  8. Bake for 40-45 minutes, untill toothpick comes out clean & middle is firm (will be dark brown)
  9. Cool 10 min in pan, then remove & cool 1 hour on rack (don't prematurely handle, needs to set!)
  10. Slice and enjoy!
  11. Store leftovers in air-tight container.
Notes:
The cooking time may vary according to pan choice. A dark metal loaf pan will cook more quickly than a glass one. If you vary and go with muffins, this will cook in only around 25 min. If toothpick comes out clean and middle is firm, it's done! Give it a good while to cool, so it can set...
