Nutty Banana Cake
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling
Delicious cake! I used walnuts (toasted) instead of pecans and for the icing, I used 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup shortening (Crisco). The cake was dense and moist and the icing was the perfect topping. Since my husband doesn't like bananas, this 8X8-inch cake is the perfect size for a family of 2!
Nice banana flavor, but more like banana bread than banana cake. After cutting off a small piece to see how it turned out, I decided to omit the frosting. It was good, but I prefer a cake-like texture.
This nutty banana cake is sooo good. We made it for gifts one Christmas!! We love it!!
Banana cake is one of my favorites so I have tried many recipes over the years. This is one of the best and it is easy & fast to make! I added 4 oz. of cream cheese to the frosting and adjusted the milk to make the right consistency for the frosting.
This cake was quite good. I was only surprised at the calorie amount. To compensate for that. I cut the amount of icing in half and just used 1/4 cup of pecan pieces in the icing. I also left out the pecans in the cake. They were not needed. The banana cake made a nice soft flavorful cake. I then baked it in a 9" pan and cut into 16 instead of 9 servings. I would make this again for company. Thank you so much.
Cake was soooo good. I put a bit more pecans in, and the frozen ripe banana I had was perhaps a bit large, so I baked for 40 minutes with foil over the last 10 to prevent over browning. It came out perfectly done. I used a cream cheese frosting from Skinnytaste without any of the butter, and I swear you wouldn't miss it once it's on the cake. Saved a bunch of calories!
This is just like banana bread* so tasty, and delicious! have made over 4 times now... a great recipe

I loved all the pecans, but the frosting was very sweet so next time I'll add the confectioners' sugar 1/2 cup at a time.
It was moist and had great flavor. I put cream cheese frosting on ours. That added to the flavor.
