My daughter’s favorite cake is banana with a peanut butter frosting.  I use bananas that are passed their prime, which I keep in the freezer until ready for use.  This recipe is really simple and delicious.

 

Banana Cake

1 stick of softened butter

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

3 bananas

1 cup sour cream

2 tbsp milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In mixer, or large bowl, cream butter and sugar and fluffy.  Add the eggs, beating well after adding. Add vanilla.  In separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mix. Add the banana, sour cream and milk.

Pour into prepared 13×9 inch pan.  Bake 35-40 minutes or until toothpick in center comes out clean.  Cool completely.

 

Peanut Butter Frosting

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

1 cup creamy peanut butter

3 cups powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix the butter and peanut butter until creamy.  Add the powdered sugar and mix on low until combined.  Stir in vanilla.  Add milk until you get desired consistency.  Spread on cake.
