Banana bread is one of my favorite baked goods with bananas, but this banana cake is another great way to use up over-ripe bananas. I’ve had this cake both plain and frosted, and it’s good either way you decide to make it!
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter (scant)
2 egg yolks
4 tablespoons sweet milk
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon baking powder, sifted
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3)
The cake is prepared by combining the sugars, butter, yolks, milk and soda in a bowl. Sift the baking powder and flour into this mixture, stir to combine. Add the mashed bananas and mix until blended.
The recipe will make 2 layers. Grease and dust your cake pans with flour. Divide the batter evenly between the two pans. For layer cakes of this type, I would suggest baking at 350 for 30-35 minutes.
