  • Cake:
  • 1 ½ cups mashed bananas
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 ⅛ cups white sugar
  • ¾ cup butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk
  • ---------------------
  • Frosting:
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 ½ cups confectioners' sugar


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13-inch pan.

Step 2

Make cake: Mix mashed bananas with lemon juice in a small bowl. Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.

Step 3

Cream sugar and butter in a large bowl until light and fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Beat in flour mixture alternately with buttermilk. Stir in banana mixture. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

Step 4

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour. Remove cake from the oven and place it directly into the freezer for 45 minutes. This will make the cake very moist.

Step 5

Meanwhile, make frosting: Cream butter and cream cheese until smooth. Beat in vanilla. Add confectioners sugar and beat on low speed until combined, then on high until frosting is smooth.

Step 6

Spread frosting on cooled cake.
