Banana Snack Cake

The source for today’s recipe is Southern Living Magazine. Flavorful, moist, and tasty. Although, this recipe calls for two cups of sugar for the batter, one cup was sufficient. Didn’t miss that extra cup! Also, the recipe calls for four cups of powdered sugar, two cups did the trick. This makes a great bake and take cake!

Yields: 32 servings

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/3 cups mashed very ripe bananas (about 3 medium)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Beat butter at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer 1 to 2 minutes or until creamy. Gradually add both sugars, beating well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Add mashed bananas and vanilla, and beat at low speed just until combined.
