“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.”

Original recipe yields 1 9-inch square cake



  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.

I wasn't a big fan of this cake, not because it was bad, but because it's so nondescript. It's not particularly flavorful or even pretty or interesting to serve. Adding a teaspoon of vanilla and a lemon buttercream frosting did little to overcome that. Simple it is, I'll give it that, but unfortunately this cake is completely forgettable.



easy, excellent. I made a couple of changes: substituted 1/4 c greek yogurt for 1/4c of the butter, added 1/2 tsp vanilla to wet mixture, substituted 3/4 cup whole wheat flour for regular flour, put in slightly less than a cup of sugar, and added 1/4 cup oats.



It's exactly what it says it is. Very good, and very simple. Having said that, I tweaked the heck out of it the second time I made it. After I mixed the batter I added chopped walnuts (1/2 cup or so) and a chopped FIRM banana. Then, after pouring it into the pan I topped it with a standard streusel topping. Lemme tell ya... over the top!
