Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting...

Original cake recipe found at The Novice Housewife.
I changed the pan type and cooking time and added frosting.

● 3 cups  all-purpose flour
● 2 tsp baking soda
● 1/2 tsp salt

●● 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
●● 2 cups sugar
●● 2 large eggs
●● 1 1/2 – 1 3/4 cups bananas (mashed, I used 5 very ripe bananas)
●● 1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
●● 2 tsp vanilla extract

● Place flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and whisk together.

●● In a separate bowl, mix butter and sugar until smooth.  Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition.  Add bananas and mix until well blended.  Add half of the dry ingredients, mix well; the sour cream and vanilla, mix well; and then the rest of the dry ingredients, and mix well.  Pour into a greased 9” x 13” pan.  Bake in a 350° F oven for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Cool in the pan.  When completely cool, spread cream cheese frosting over cake.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
8 oz cream cheese (softened)
½ cup butter (softened)
3 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract

Cream butter and cream cheese together well.  Add vanilla and powdered sugar and mix till smooth.

My notes:  I got distracted and left mine in the oven for an hour.  It got a bit overcooked on the bottom, but it tasted fine.
