Yesterday was my husband’s birthday and of course I wanted to bake his cake myself rather than buy one. His favorite cake is banana cake and I definitely wanted to attempt to make one. I was a little nervous considering that my banana bread didn’t turn out how I wanted it to. However, I asked some of my friends for their banana cake recipes and my friend Jamie gave me her grandmother’s recipe – it did NOT disappoint!!!! THANK YOU JAMIE!!!!!!!!

1 c sour cream
0.5 c butter softened
2 eggs
3 med-lrg bananas, mashed

2. mix sugar, sour cream, butter and eggs in large bowl.

Pig Rating: It was the Pig’s birthday and the Pig was impressed! He kept going on about how “really good” this cake was and he ate two or three pieces I think. : )

Mrs. Pig Rating: YUMMMMMM! I love banana anything and this cake was awesome! I think next time I will cook the butter a little more for the frosting…I got impatient but it still turned out amazing!

Friends of the Pigs: They LOVED this cake also. I love impressing friends : ) Thanks again Jamie!

  1. I’m glad you guy’s liked it! 🙂 Awww. Your picture captures it amazingly well…I love that it’s half-eaten.

  2. Yum, someone brought a banana cake to Thanksgiving, but I didn’t get a chance to try it…. Maybe I’ll use this recipe to make one.

  3. That cake looks delicious! I may try that too….Jamie — thanks for sharing your recipe with April! 😉
