"This is a no-frills cake that tastes great with morning beverages or as a snack. It's good for using up those overripe bananas that you hate to throw away."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch square baking dish.
  2. Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy; beat in eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Stir bananas into butter mixture.
  3. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together in another bowl. Stir flour mixture into banana mixture until batter is evenly blended. Pour batter into prepared baking dish.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can sift a thin layer of confectioner's sugar over the top a minute or so after it comes out of the oven if you want it to look fancy, but the browned top has a nice rich nutty taste all by itself.

This recipe IS simple. Based on other reviews I added a tsp. of vanilla as well as 1 c. combination of fresh pineapple and walnuts to use up some odds and ends. I wish I'd had flaked coconut t...

This is a good banana cake, but the name is deceiving. This is by no means a coffee cake. It has a great taste and texture, looks just like the photo, and bakes exactly 30 minutes, as the recipe...
