Banana Cake Recipe

Banana Cake Recipe

Banana cake has always been my youngest son's favorite cake, so he agreed to help create the ultimate recipe. This banana cake recipe is the best, the one he and I tested in our little kitchen until it was perfect.

We tried different amounts of some of the ingredients, different timing while preparing, and adjusted the baking time. We made three cakes that day, and this recipe is the result of persistence in baking until we got the perfect banana cake.

It's the authentic, trusted delicious banana cake recipe that won't have you worrying about the end result. It's our very own moist banana cake with cream cheese frosting, the cake to serve at the end of memorable meals.

A luscious banana puree keeps it moist, and the sinfully delicious cream cheese frosting envelops the golden hued cake.

The aroma of vanilla and bananas will permeate your kitchen, tempting you to eat dessert first. Don't give in! This is one cake that's worth getting through a meal for. Don't settle for imitations, this is the best Banana Cake Recipe.
