Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

What to do when you have too many overripe bananas?!?! Normally I make a banana bread, but today I decided why not try something different. I had a block of cream cheese in the fridge and some extra butter. I decided to whip up a cake for afternoon snack and it was delicious! It’s a nice sweet indulgent change to the traditional loaf cake/ bread we are all used to making! Hope you like it as much as we do!

Banana Cake

Preheat oven 350 degrees

1/2 cup butter 1 stick softened

3/4 cup white sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1/2 cup sour cream

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt

4 mashed bananas

In a med/ large bowl mix softened butter and both sugars until mixed well and soft. ( I used a hand mixer today) Add both eggs and whip together. Mix in sour cream and vanilla. Next add baking soda and salt. Slowly add in flour. In a separate bowl mash bananas and add to larger bowl. Mix batter with spoon. Spread into a 9×13 greased cake pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes depending on your oven. Mine took 30 minutes.
