Ingredients

Banana Cake

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons banana extract
  • 1 1/4 cups cake flour*
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 ounces buttermilk

Frosting

*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 15 x 10 x 1-inch pan with nonstick baking spray.
  2. Beat butter and sugar until light and creamy. Add eggs and banana extract and mix again until thick and pale yellow.
  3. Sift cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into batter. Pour in buttermilk. Gently mix until combined.
  4. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. Tap lightly to remove air bubbles. Bake 17-18 minutes.
  5. Remove and let cool 5 minutes in pan. Flip out carefully onto a wax paper lined tray. Let cool completely.
  6. Beat butter, salt, and vanilla extract until creamy. Add heavy cream and powdered sugar and mix until combined. Increase mixer speed and beat until light and fluffy.
  7. Flip cooled cake over onto another tray. Cut cake in half short ways. Spread frosting on one half, then place other cake on top.
  8. Cut filled cake in half again and cut each section into 5 cakes giving you a total of 10 small cakes.
