Banana Cake


DH made this yesterday. It is made in a loaf pan, like Banana Bread, but it calls for a sauce poured over it. It got a very good rating.

Banana Cake

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup butter, at room temp.
pinch salt
2 TB milk
1 egg, beaten
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 TB lime juice
1 TB butter

Stir together the flour, baking soda, and baking powder in a bowl. Cream together the bananas, 1/4 cup butter, salt, milk, egg, white sugar and vanilla until smooth. Pour the batter into a well buttered 9" loaf pan and bake in a preheated 350 F. oven for 45 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan and set on a serving plate.

While the cake is still warm, combine the brown sugar, lime juice and 1 TB butter in a saucepan. Heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar dissolves. Pour over the warm cake and serve. Yield: 6 servings
