Banana Cake Recipe

Banana Bread is one of my favorite recipes is the whole world. It's super moist, incredibly easy to make, and the best way to use leftover bananas that have been sitting for way too long in the fridge. It's also a crowd favorite and honestly, I haven't found the first person that doesn't like a good banana bread, so with the summer gatherings fastly approaching I decided to try my hand at making a banana bread cake and I have to say, it knocked my socks off. We hope that you adore this Banana Cake Recipe as much as we do.

This banana cake is so good you'll want to keep the recipe for yourself and never share it with anyone else (I know because I had to convince myself to share it with you all), then you'll want to make a second batch and a third batch and another one because it's so good you'll want to take it with you to every party, gathering, little get together that you have, you may even find yourself inviting people over just to have an excuse to make an eat more of the cake. Yes, it's that good.

Banana Cake RecipeThe cake is made like a fluffier banana bread, it still uses banana and all the usuals but a bit more of baking powder + a bit more of mixing time to incorporate air into the batter. The result is a cake that's packed with flavor and that holds great the frosting.

Banana Cake RecipeThen for the frosting, we are whipping up a big batch of vanilla and decorating the cake with little ribbons of frosting but what gives the complete wow factor is the banana coins carefully placed between the frosting swirls. To prevent the coins from browning just drizzle them with a bit of lemon juice and they'll look fresh all day long.
