Ingredients

How to make it

  • For cake
  • Grease and lightly flour 9 x 13 pan.
  • Combine first 5 ingredients in large mixing bowl.
  • Add margarine and banana.
  • Beat on low until combined.
  • Add buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla.
  • Beat 2 minutes on medium.
  • Pour batter into pan.
  • Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes or until done.
  • Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan.
  • Cool thoroughly before icing.
  • For Secret Icing
  • I usually make 1 1/2 batches for the cake. Again, make sure cake is completely cooled before icing.
  • Melt butter.
  • Stir in brown sugar.
  • Cook over low heat for a few minutes until bubbling, stirring constantly.
  • Add milk, and stir bubbles down.
  • Remove from heat, and stir in icing sugar.
  • Pour over cake and spread quickly.
  • Let icing cool and enjoy!

    This sounds delish, think this is the icing recipe I lost years ago. Great post, you got my five, and remember the best banana cake is made with overly ripe banana's - the one's you wouldn't eat any longer.
