Just wondering if y'all had a good Banana cake recipe that is from a mix that is doctored up.....the one I am looking at now is the one I got from "The Cake Mix Doctor" book that I just got! (BTW I can't believe I've waited this long to buy!!) Any other suggestions for a recipe? It is for a 1st birthday!

And another thought.....would buttercream or creamcheese frosting be better?!?

TIA

Can't help with the doctored cake recipe but I just made two banana cakes fromk scratch this morning. I add cream cheese to my crusting buttercream icing and add a little more butter flavoring. My DS and DD love the icing that way. I have buttercream on hand so I don't have to made special icing to frost. about 8 oz of cream cheese with 6 cups of buttercream icing. HTH

I use DH cake mix add 3 eggs, 2 cups water, 1/2 cup oil, 1/2 box instant banana pudding, 1/2 mashed banana and 1/4 cup finely chopped nuts (optional). Comes out pretty light and rises like a regular cake. I wrap the sides of my cake pans to prevent the hump in the middle.

I just used a DH white cake mix, follow instructions, and added mashed banana's... It came out delicious. I used cream cheese frosting with the banana cake...

I am also needing a good Banana cake. I love the WASC recipe and use it for everything. Anyone know how this would work with banana? Should I just add extract? I have some darkened bananas on hand but unsure if I increase or decrease the Sour Cream or water to make up for the banana. I need to bake this tomorrow so I appreciate your responses.

In the google document "Gourmet flavors" there is a banana WASC along with other flavors

If you dont mind me asking...what recipe do you use?? I am slowly switching over to scratch baking and would like to try a good banana cake. I have some ripe bananas that need to be used up within the next day or so icon_smile.gif

take one cake mix .... prepare as directed..... add drops of banana oil (McCormick makes it ... in the baking aisle at walmart, next to the vanilla).

Had a couple of wedding cakes where the bride wanted banana cake. She loved this.
