Hello! I would like to make a cake with fresh bananas in it...is it possible? if so, is there anything I need to add to the bananas to keep it from browning? Thanks in advance!

ive done banana cake before and i just mashed bananas into the batter and it was really tasty. once it was cooked it went a little off colour but then it is expected with bananas. I dont know of anything that will stop a banana from going brown.

Citus juice, pineapple juice, etc. prevents bananas from browning.

Thank you for your input. I was thinking of filling the cake with custard and then adding some banana slices. I'm just worried that when they slice the cake they'll find yucky brown bananas in it. I'll try the pineapple....thanks so much!

I have found that banana cake gets stronger daily to where the taste is too strong of old banana at about the third day. Besides that, the cakes are delicious. I offer three different banana cakes.
