Mom’s Banana Cake

by | Feb 15, 2014 | desserts/sweets, memories, recipes

One of the treats I enjoyed as a child was my mom’s banana cake. It was a favorite at our home back then, and is still one of mine today.

I love making Mom’s recipes, especially when I am blessed to read them in her handwriting on her own recipe cards. What a gift!

This is a simple, but delicious recipe. Mom always made her own cream cheese frosting, and NEVER used prepared frosting out of a can. I do often. For this cake, I usually use Betty Crocker’s Whipped Cream Cheese frosting. This time, however, I used their Rich & Creamy Cream Cheese frosting. (I like the Whipped better.)


Mom’s Banana Cake

1-1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. shortening (I use butter)
2 eggs
4 T. sour milk (3 T. milk & 1 T. vinegar)
1 t. baking soda
1 c. mashed bananas (2 or 3)
2 c. flour

Cream sugar & shortening. Add eggs. Mix milk and baking soda. Add to creamed mixture, mix well. Add flour, mix well. Add bananas last, mix well. Pour into a 9 x 13 greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
