Banana cake is one of my all time favorite kind of cake. To me its one of those cakes that has fruit so it seems like it is healthy and has the rich sweet taste from the cooked bananas that makes banana bread so good, but in cake form. The banana walnut cake comes out super moist and fluffy, great balance of sweet and richness and is topped with a great cream cheese frosting that isn't over sweet. Banana cake tastes even better after it has been in the refrigerator and is cold on a hot summer day like today. Check out the recipe below in post.
In a large bowl, beat together the brown sugar, white sugar, butter, and bananas until well combined. There will be little banana chunks in the batter. Add the eggs and butter milk, mix until smooth.
Whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Slowly add dry ingredients into the wet and mix until just combined. Fold in the chopped walnuts.
Pour batter into a 9x13 pan sprayed with nonstick spray. Spread evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Placing in the refrigerator can speed up this process, but let cool slightly beforehand.
Once the cake has cooled, it is time to make the frosting. In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and cream cheese together until combined.
Add in vanilla extract, powdered sugar, and heavy cream. Beat together until frosting forms. Add more powdered sugar and/or milk until desired frosting consistency is reached.
Spread evenly over the cake and garnish with finely chopped walnuts if desired.
