Recipe Notes


You will need a cup of mashed bananas.  This should be about 2-3 medium size bananas. Go with ripe bananas for your cake.  They are easier to mash, a little sweeter and will blend better.


None on hand?  Simply whisk together 1/2 cup milk with a teaspoon of white vinegar or lemon juice. Let it sit for 5 minutes, then, proceed with the recipe.


I frosted ours with peanut butter frosting.  However, this cake will go great with a chocolate frosting, cream cheese or vanilla.  It's even delicious without any frosting at all!  Explore some ideas right here.


Keep any leftovers in a covered container. No need to refrigerate, unless the weather is really hot/humid in your area. The cake is best eaten within a week.
