How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 300°.
  • Grease and flour cake pans.
  • Combine bananas with lemon juice in a small bowl; set aside.
  • In another bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt.
  • In a large mixing bowl or kitchen mixer bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time and the liqueur.
  • Slowly add flour alternating with the buttermilk. Stir in bananas.
  • Pour batter into pans.
  • 3 layers; 2 cups of batter per pan - 2 layers; 3 cups of batter per pan -or you can use bundt pan or 9 x 13 cake pan. Check cake with knife to determine when it is done at about 25 minutes (my three layers were done in 25 minutes but if you are making two layers your time will most likely increase).
  • Meanwhile make the frosting: Cream butter and cream cheese and add vanilla. Add confectioners sugar a little at a time and mix at high speed until smooth.
  • Cool completely then frost. Place chopped pecans around side of cake to hide imperfections in layers or add to top.
  • Cover and place in refrigerator.

    I took the advice of "Jo jo ba" and added less sugar. I also made a simple syrup with banana liqueur (equal parts water & alcohol, cooked down by half) to drizzle over the baked cake through skewered holes. Lastly, I added banana liqueur to the icing to make it drizzle of the Bundt cake that baked for about 65 minutes. Delicious!

    This is definitely better when allowed to sit for a day, but as written it's too sweet for us (even with the lemon juice and buttermilk!) using 1 cup of white sugar and 1/2 cup of brown did the trick for us.

    Very nice touch with the amaretto. Lifts above the mundane.

    magieno6, we are alike on the banana thing. I can't eat them either unless they are VERY firm, so mine usually end up in banana bread, muffins, or cakes, lol. You will want them to be real ripe for this so they mash easier.

    This sounds wonderful. I shall be pleased to try it as I only like Bananas to eat when slightly green. when once they become too ripe I am afraid to admit I often waste them but using them in this way it would not matter if they were a little riper.
