There are several things I love about this cake:
1. It can easily serve over 30 people!
2. It uses up old bananas
3. It's the most moist delicious thing EVER.
4. It's super easy
You will need:
3/4 cup butter softened (125g)
2 1/8 cup white sugar
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda or powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana
How to make it:
Preheat your oven to 140oC (275oF)
Grease and flour, or line with baking paper a large lamington or slice pan 20cm x 30cm (9 x 13 inch)
Mix all ingredients together in your electric mixer, or by hand.
Pour into prepared pan and bake for one hour. It will be quite dense and moist.
Remove from oven and place into freezer for 45 minutes (on a heat proof board of course!)
This does "something" and makes the cake very moist. If you can't be bothered to do the freezer step, you don't need to, the cake is still moist without it.
1/2 cup softened butter
1 x 250g pack cream cheese softened
3 1/2 cups icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Beat all together until smooth. Spread on cake and enjoy!
