Welcome to my recipe blog! I started it when my brother, Mark, moved away and was in need of some recipes....or so I thought.... The goal is to post recipes that can be made quickly, easily, and inexpensively. If you have something to contribute, please let me know and I will be glad to add it!!

Banana Nut Cake

This was my great grandmother's recipe, and it is just about the yummiest cake in the whole wide world. I really REALLY love this one!!!


Banana Nut Cake
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
2 cups flour
4 tbsp. buttermilk
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 mashed bananas
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Mash bananas and set aside. Blend sugar and butter. Add eggs, buttermilk and soda. Blend. Add bananas and blend. Add flour and blend again. Pour into 3 round pans (8 or 9 inch) and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until done. Let cool

Icing:
1/2 cup butter
1 box powdered sugar
2 mashed bananas
1 cup chopped pecans

Mash bananas. Add butter, suger and pecans. Ice the cake -- the icing just goes between the layers. You don't have to smear it on the edges if you don't want to. Garnish with addtional whole pecans, if desired.

Yummy!!!
