Myrtle's Famous Banana Cake image

Number Of Ingredients 16

1 3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup mashed bananas
2 1/4 cups sifted cake flour
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
Brown Sugar Frosting:
3 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons cream
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
dash of salt


  • Cream together sugar and butter. (High-grade margarine can be substituted for the butter, if you prefer, but that is something Myrtle would never do.) When mixture is light and fluffy, add eggs and continue beating until smooth. Dissolve baking soda in buttermilk and stir into batter. Add bananas, cake flour, and flavoring. Mix well and pour into 2 greased and floured (8-inch) pans or one (9x13-inch) baking pan. Bake at 350° for 30-45 minutes. Can make 4 - 6 cupcakes as well as the flat cake, for this makes a generous amount of batter. The cupcakes take about 20 minutes to bake. Can frost with Brown Sugar Frosting. Brown Sugar Frosting: Heat brown sugar, butter, and cream together over low heat, stirring until well blended and sugar is dissolved. Remove from fire and stir in remaining ingredients, using enough powdered sugar to make of spreading consistency. When smooth and creamy, frost the cake.
