Old Fashioned Banana Cake

Yield: 1-2 pans/sheets of cake


  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 cubes margarine, softened
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 cups mashed bananas
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • Frosting
  • 3/4 cup softened margarine
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp. evaporated milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla


  • Banana Cake:
  • Cream together sugar and margarine. Add eggs, sour cream and baking soda (beat well). Finally add mashed bananas, flour and vanilla. Grease or flour a big cookie sheet. Bake at 350* for 20-25 minutes. Make sure toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Frosting:
  • Beat together frosting ingredients and frost once the cake is completely cooled.


This dessert can be made in a cookie sheet pan or a cake pan. The recipe yields more than a regular pan can hold, so two 9 x 13 cake pans or cookie sheets can be used depending on the desired thickness of the cake bars. This recipe is great for luncheons and parties and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. (Not to mention that this cake is delicious.)

    Pinned it! This sounds really tasty!

  2. I’ve been browsing online greater than three hours today, but I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours.

    It’s pretty worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all site owners
    and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the web might be
    much more useful than ever before.
