How many bananas do you need to make a banana cake?

The nutritional information provided is an estimate and will vary depending on the cooking methods and brands of ingredients used. If you prefer less frosting, you can cut the frosting ingredients in half. I'm sure I'll measure in grams when I find bananas at a cheaper price and make this cake again. I love a good banana cake, it just reminds me of when I was a child because my grandfather and grandmother made the BEST banana cupcakes.

With a cake this wet, sometimes the toothpick can look clean when it actually has a thin, almost translucent layer of banana cake dough on it. The cream cheese frosting complements everything, and it was obvious that this was the perfect choice to make the BEST banana cake recipe. This super moist banana cake is topped with a spicy cream cheese frosting as a dessert or as an afternoon pick-me-up that's impossible to beat. The best thing about this banana cake recipe is that you can make it with whole wheat flour or white wheat flour.

However, I must use the word wet throughout this post because, well, there's really no other way to describe this banana cake. While just picking 4 ripe bananas might work well for you, if they're bigger than you think, it could cause a wet cake, and for this reason, I recommend that you puree and then measure the bananas. It took some tweaking and testing, but I'm so proud to finally share with you my favorite banana cake recipe. My banana cake recipe was thoughtfully and intentionally designed to be sweet, simple, super tasty and moist.

Once all the peels are black on the bananas, you'll take them out of the oven and let them cool. I had only been blogging for a few months at the time, but this banana cake has remained one of my favorite recipes for more than a decade. This banana cake was made to me by a friend when I was visiting her after giving birth to her eleventh child.
