One of our favorite ways to use up ripe bananas is to bake 'em into a cake, like this Brown Sugar Banana Cake. This banana cake recipe makes such a moist and delicious cake that no one will be able to keep away!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter, softened, plus another 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 4 bananas)
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat granulated sugar, the 1/2 stick softened butter, sour cream, and eggs until creamy. Beat in bananas and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Add flour, baking soda, and salt; mix well. Pour into baking dish.
  3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool.
  4. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt remaining 1/2 stick butter. Stir in brown sugar and milk and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat and place in a large bowl. Let cool 15 minutes.
  5. Add confectioners' sugar and remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla to bowl and beat with electric mixer until smooth. Spread frosting over cake and serve.

This cake was a hit with my family. Great banana flavor. Love the frosting. I don't know if I will be making banana bread anytime soon.
