Banana Cake

I snipped this banana cake recipe from a farm publication called The Western Producer not too long ago. It is great served with warm caramel sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.

Banana Cake
  • 1 cup margarine or butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3-4 mashed bananas
  • 1 cup sour milk or buttermilk
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  1. Mix butter and sugar.
  2. Beat in eggs…and vanilla, bananas and buttermilk.
  3. Stir in dry ingredients and mix until blended.
  4. Pour into a greased nine by thirteen inch pan…or two nine inch round cake pans.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes…or until set in centre.
Warm Caramel Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed sugar
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  1. Melt butter in skillet over medium heat. 
  2. Add sugar; cook until melted, stirring occasionally. 
  3. Stir in sour cream and cook for 1 minute. 
I have also used this cake as the base for my grandson’s birthday cake. What could be more appropriate for a monkey cake than a moist banana cake recipe? I’ll post instructions for the monkey cake below.
