Banana Nut Cake 

If you like bananas, this cake is a must try. My son loves cream cheese frosting! Moist, nutty, bursting bananas + the homemade frosting. Scrumptious! 
Perfect dessert for any season!! Paula Deen’s Banana Nut Cake Recipe 

– 3 cups all purpose flour 

– 2 cups sugar

– 1 teaspoon baking soda 

– 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

-1/2 tsp salt

– 3 eggs, beaten 

– 3/4 cup vegetable oil 

– 4 ripe bananas, mashed 

– 1 cup chopped pecans (extra for topping) 

– 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract + tsp for frosting 

– 1  8oz package cream cheese 

– 1 cup butter, room temperature 

– 1 lb sifted confectioners sugar 

Preparation: 

Butter and flour 3 (9-inch) round cake pans; set aside. Preheat oven to 350°.

In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Add the eggs and oil and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened; do not beat. Stir in the banana, 1 cup pecans and 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Divide the batter among the prepared pans and bake for 23 to 28 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool the cake layers in the pans for 10 minutes, and then turn them out onto a rack to cool completely. While the cake cools, make the frosting.

Frosting:

In a bowl, blend together the cream cheese and butter. Gradually add the confectioner’s sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Stir in 1/2 cup pecans, or reserve them to sprinkle over the frosted cake. Fill and frost the cake when it is completely cool.
