Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling
I had to create an account to write this review so I could save someone else the 3 hours to make and frost this awful cake. I had kept the recipe for quite a while and finally had the time and bananas to make it. First of all, it’s a LOT of butter in the cake and frosting. It makes the cake very very heavy in every sense of the word. I baked it for longer than suggested and got a toothpick to come out clean, but after cooling and frosting it, the center was just raw batter. Also, I halved the amount of sugar for the frosting and it still was enough to give a small village cavities. If this recipe didn’t take so long to make, I would just keep moving, but it really was a huge disappointment and waste of quite a lot of ingredients for an inedible mess.
I made this cake yesterday. It is already gone! This is a tasty cake! This is one of those recipes I will keep forever! I was wondering that the cake didn’t have the same spices or any spices, like banana bread? It doesn’t need it! With each individual piece I sliced bananas on top. It was the perfect finish. Also mine did take longer to cook. But turned out amazing!
Excellent cake, will definitely make again!
excellent perfect recipe for old bananas, easy too !
Happy to say that this turned out wonderfully. I used a bit less sugar in the cake and frosting and a bit more butter in the frosting as I like a bit more butter flavor, but otherwise, this was a winner! The combo of the baking powder, soda, and whipped egg whites lighten up the heavier bananas and give the cake a nice crumb and texture. Easy to make, too!
I bake...a lot and for many years. I seldom have failures but this was an absolute travesty. Followed the directions to a T but even after an hour of baking the center is fallen mush. I don’t think if I cooked it another 30 minutes it would be the right consistency. I hate wasting food and this was an absolute waste!
This recipe sounds easy and I want to make it tomorrow. Does anyone know if there should be an altitude adjustment (for 3500 and over)? Thanks!
Very delicious recipe. Light and fluffy. Not dense at all. I made cupcakes and almost got 4 dozen by making one and a half times the recipe. I had mascarpone on hand so I made frosting with that instead of cream cheese. A little sweet but still very nice.
Loved it. Made it for a family gathering, ti was a hit.
Amazing cake! I made this, but I substituted Butter Toffee Drizzle with walnuts. It was TO DIE FOR!!
