This is my 2nd most requested cake flavor....

1 stick butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed ripe bananas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 2 9inch pans or 3 8 inch pans.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the sour cream and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter. Finally, mix in the mashed banana. Spread evenly into the prepared pans.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

I just happened to see this recipe on a blog this morning. It sounds wonderful, but I haven't baked it so no promises. The recipe is from Dorie Greenspan's cookbook ... http://foodlibrarian.blogspot.com/

I may have to go by the grocery and see if they have any overly-ripe bananas ... try this one tonight. thumbs_up.gif

I've done a yellow butter cake mix, add a tablespoon of banana flavoring and then half a box of banana flavored pudding and it came out perfect!

I used the quick banana cake recipe from here under cake mix cakes. The bride loved it so much it went from being 1 to all 4 tiers being banana.

There are a couple in this link.

Here's one that is slightly different than the ones listed. I've had nothing but success with it. It makes about 7 cups of batter



Banana Cake (1/2 recipe)

1/2 BC White Mix
1/2 DH Banana Mix
1 C Cake Flour
1 C Sugar
3/4 tsp Salt
1/2 pkg Banana Pudding
8 oz Plain Yogurt
2/3 C Water
2/3 C Skim Milk
2 T Oil
4 Eggs
1 Med Mashed Banana
1 1/2 tsp Banana Flavoring
1/2 tsp Vanilla (or 2 tsp banana flavoring)

Sift all dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients & mix on low for 2 min & bake at 325 until a few crumbs remain on a toothpick/skewer.

IMO, at least the one I tried, Paula's banana cake wasn't amazing. My new fave banana cake (it's amazing!) is

Edited to add: I never put it in the freezer immediately after but let it cool and then put it in wrapped in plastic wrap & foil overnight. It's still super moist. Also, I've never had to worry about it breaking when flipping. It can take a beating.

I use my regular wedding cake and add banana oil (and some yellow food coloring, unless I use the whole egg, which turns it yellow anyway). quick simple and easy.

Now that I am a true WASC recipe fan...I would suggest testing out a banana variation: banana flavor, mashed bananas as part of the liquid, butter recipe cake mix, banana pudding mix....if there is not already a MacsMom recipe, you might come up with a very delicious cake that yields a lot of batter for a wedding cake. It's such a reliable recipe.
