This is such an Awesome Cake.  These make awesome muffins as well!

Cake Ingredients & Directions

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups mashed bananas (about 4 small to medium bananas)
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts-divided (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour  a bundt pan. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda ,salt, cinnamon and nutmeg; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter, white sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time and add vanilla.  Mix in the bananas. Add flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk to the creamed mixture. Stir in 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. Pour batter into the prepared bundt pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 50  minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool for 5 minutes. Turn over onto a cake plate.

Note:  You can also make this in 2-8 inch rounds and bake them for approx. 30 minutes.  You can also make muffins and banana bread from this as well.  I prefer to have it as cake…and possibly muffins.
