Original recipe yields 2 layer cake



  1. In a large bowl, mix together butter or margarine, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, sift together flour, salt, soda, and baking powder. Add these dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Add sour milk and bananas to the batter. Beat together well.
  3. Line two 9 inch round cake pans, or one 9 x 13 inch pan with wax paper; the pans can be greased and floured instead, if desired. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 17 to 20 minutes for the layered cakes, or for 25 to 40 minutes for the sheet cake.

This was an amazingly moist cake. For sour milk I used an old family method: 2 tbsp vinegar and enough milk to make 1 cup (I only used 3/4 C like the recipe calls though). I frosted it with a little homemade chocolate icing and sprinkled it with chopped walnuts. This cake was a real nice treat and great to take to work if made in a 13x9 size.



This was the best banana cake I have ever had. It is so moist, light and fluffy. I did add 1/2 TBS of cinnamon and instead of using sour milk I used 1/2 cup of sour cream and 1/4 cup milk. This was so good plain I didn't even bother frosting it. Thanks for the recipe.



With all the banana cake recipes listed here, I didn't know which one to make. But don't look any further--this is the recipe you want! :-) I made this (in a 9x13 pan) for my husband's birthday, even though he's not real big on bananas. He loved it, and so did everyone else! (I accidently poured in the whole cup of sour milk that I had prepared, and it still turned out to be perfect!) I added chocolate chips (as others suggested), and I topped it with the "Banana Cream Frosting" (another "" recipe; see my review for that too). It tasted absolutely delicious this way!! Very moist and filling! Thanks Carol!
