Cooking Recipes Catalogue

A very old banana nut cake recipe which has been handed down through my family.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 9 inch round cake pans.
  • Separate the eggs and set aside.
  • Stir the baking soda into the buttermilk. Cream 1/2 cup of the butter or margarine with the white sugar. Add the egg yolks, and vanilla, beating well. Add flour alternately with the mashed bananas. Stir in the buttermilk mixture.
  • Beat the egg whites until stiff. Stir the pecans into the cake batter then fold in the egg whites. Pour batter into prepared pans.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 minutes or until cakes test done. Let cakes cool in pans than ice and top with pecan halves if desired.
  • To Make Icing: Cream 3 tablespoons butter or margarine with the confectioners' sugar. Stir in the heavy cream until well blended. Spread icing on to cooled cake layers.
