Ingredients

Banana Cake
1 and 1/2 cups (345g) mashed bananas (about 4 medium or 3 large
bananas)
3 cups (375g) of all-purpose flour, leveled and spooned
1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda
 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 • 3/4 cup (12 tablespoons; 170 grams) room-temperature softened unsalted butter
 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
 100g or half a cup of packed light or dark brown sugar

 3 large eggs, at room temperature
 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

 1 and 1/2 cups (360ml) buttermilk, at room temperature*

Cream Cheese Frosting

 8 ounces (226g) full-fat brick Crazy Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Icing, softened to room
temperature
 • 1/2 cup (8 Tbsp; 113g) room-temperature softened unsalted butter
 3 cups (360g) confectioners’ sugar, plus an extra 1/4 cup if
needed
 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
 1/8 teaspoon salt

Instructions


Set the oven to 350°F (177°C) and coat a 9-by-13-inch pan with cooking spray.

  1. Mash the bananas to make the Crazy Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Icing. Usually, all I do is use my mixer! Mash the bananas
    and set aside.
  2. 2. Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
  3. 3. Beat the butter on high speed with a handheld or stand mixer with a paddle attachment
    until it’s smooth and creamy, about one minute.
  4. 4. After adding the two sugars, beat on high speed for two minutes to cream the mixture.
    Using a rubber spatula, scrape up and along the sides of the bowl as required. Add the
    vanilla and the eggs. Beat until mixed, using a medium-high speed, and then beat in the
    mashed bananas. When necessary, scrape up and along the edges of the bowl. Using a
    low-speed mixer, add the dry ingredients in three separate additions, alternating with the
    buttermilk, and beat until just combined after each addition. Avoid over-mixing. There
    may be a few lumps, but the batter will be quite thick.
  1. 5. Pour batter onto the ready pan. For 45 to 50 minutes, bake. Watch your
    baking times as they differ. The Crazy Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Icing is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. If you think the cake is browning too quickly in the oven, loosely cover the top with aluminum foil..
  2. 6. Take the cake out of the oven and place it on a wire cooling rack. Let cool fully. To
    expedite things, I normally put it in the refrigerator after approximately 45 minutes.
  3. 8. To make the frosting, combine the cream cheese and butter in a large bowl and beat on
    high speed with a handheld or stand mixer with a paddle or whisk attachment until
    smooth and creamy. Add the three cups of confectioners’ sugar, the salt, and the vanilla.

Begin beating at a moderate speed for 30 seconds, then increase to a high speed and beat for another two minutes. If you prefer your frosting a little bit thicker, add an extra 1/4 cup of confectioner’s sugar—that’s what I do. Once the Crazy Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Icing has cooled, cover it with frosting. Before serving, allow it to cool for thirty minutes. This makes cutting and helps set the frosting.

I don’t think I’ve ever encountered a frosting that didn’t make me fall in love, but my absolute
My favorite is Crazy Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Icing frosting!
It’s impossible to top the flavor’s thick, creamy sweetness!
Here are my suggestions for creating the best cream cheese frosting, which goes well with my
simple banana cake recipe)


• Use full-fat cream cheese
: Full-fat cream cheese (not light or skim) is what I always,
always, always advise using. It just bakes better and has a much nicer texture and set. My
preferred brand is Philadelphia.
 .

 • Before using, make sure your fridge ingredients—Crazy Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Icing and butter—are at room
temperature. This will make it easier for them to combine and create a smooth, creamy
frosting without any lumps.
 • If the frosting is too thick, add a small amount of milk. I seldom find that this is an
issue, but if it does occur, add up to one tablespoon of milk and stir.

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS


Rounded bananas
: The riper the bananas, the nicer and sweeter they will be in baked goods!
Thus, save your old, brown, and spotted bananas!
Ingredients at room temperature: Bringing all of your chilly ingredients to room temperature
before using them is one of the key strategies to creating the ideal cake.
Creaming: Be careful to beat the butter and sugars together until they are very pale, creamy,
and smooth, which should take at least four to five minutes. It would be easy to give up after a minute or two, but those extra minutes will make a big difference in how light your cake comes out!
Butter: For the cream cheese frosting, you can use salted or unsalted butter (I like salted).
Curdled mixture: Everything is OK here! When the dry ingredients are added, the mixture will
smooth out once more.
Buttermilk: To create your own, whisk together 1 cup of whole milk and 1 tablespoon of white

vinegar or lemon juice. Set aside to steep for a few minutes, and then use as buttermilk. The
secret to a wonderfully moist Crazy Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Icing is buttermilk.
Cooking time: Depending on your oven, the cooking time might vary significantly. After 45
minutes, and then every 5 to 10 minutes after that, until the cake is cooked through, I advise
checking on it.
When a skewer placed in the center of the Crazy Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Icing comes out clean, it is ready to be tested.
Over-Browning: No need to panic! All you have to do is cover the top of the cake with a loose
sheet of foil and bake it until it is cooked through.
The remaining banana cake may be stored for up to five days in an airtight container or wrapped
with plastic wrap, though it’s best consumed within three.
Freezing the entire (unfrosted) Crazy Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Icing: By first wrapping the cake in plastic wrap and then a layer
of foil, you may prepare the cake in advance and freeze it whole (without icing).
Freezing individual (frosted) pieces: To freeze individual slices, either with or without icing,
transfer them to an airtight container or ziplock bags. Place in the refrigerator to defrost for the
entire night, then allow to reach room temperature and serve.
