Mine is the quickest, simplest one: I use one Betty Crocker yellow cake mix and add banana flavored oil. Wha-Lah!!! Banana cake!! icon_biggrin.gif

Here is my no fail banana cake recipe. It's delicious!!

1 box of moist supreme yellow cake
1 box of banana cream instant pudding
1 large ripe banana
crushed pecans
icing of choice (i used buttercream icing)

mix the cake as directed, add in ONE cup of banana pudding (already prepared) before it sets (but also not too runny), add the FINELY chopped pecans (i bought the ones at the store that was already chopped)
slice the banana and add it to the cake mix then beat on low for a couple of seconds to get it all mixed in...
Poor into already greased cake pan
bake for 35 minutes on 350

I found one on and made it this weekend for my son's first birthday was AWESOME!! It's recipe #67256 "Best Ever Banana Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting". It's a scratch recipe but very easy to make.

This cake is the best! I just did one for a customer who requested banana cake and she said everyone loved it. It is made by scratch but goes together quickly and worth every second.

2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 T baking soda
1/4 t baking powder
2 eggs
1 pinch of salt
4 ripe bananas mashed
1/2 cup un-salt butter
2/3 cup buttermilk or sour cream
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 t vanilla
1 t. cinnamon

Whisk together flour, soda, salt, baking powder. In large bowl, cream butter, sugar until fluffy, add eggs. Mix in bananas. Add flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk to the creamed mixture. Stir in nuts. Pour into prepared (2) 8 inch pans. Bake for 30 minutes. thumbs_up.gif

charleezgal, what was the texture like for your cake? Thanks

The texture was very moist. I was pleased with it and will definately use it again. I looked all over the internet and read reviews all day trying to find a banana cake recipe that did not require a boxed mix and one that was NOT a banana BREAD recipe only made in a cake pan.

This one fit all my criteria and was really good. If you end up using this one, let me know what you think.

Banana Sour Cream Cake

2 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup mashed banana
1/2 cup butter
1 package banana pudding mix
1/2 cup cream

combine all ingredients and mix until well blended. Pour in greased and floured pan and bake at 325-350 until a toothpick comes out clean.

This is a VERY tasty, moist cake. However, it is one that tends to rise high and then fall some as it cools. It comes out great but just a head's up.
