Banana Cake

Banana Cake is a favorite at gatherings with my husband's family. The bananas make the cake deliciously moist, and it has just the right amount of sweetness. Caution: It's so good, someone might try to steal it!! Recipe, directions, and photos included.


2 Layer Yellow Cake (baked according to package directions)
6 ripe bananas
5 tablespoons granulated sugar (or amount needed for desired sweetness)
Confectioner's Sugar (Optional)


Bake Yellow Cake according to package directions in 2 pans. 

Split each layer into 2 layers using a knife and/or dental floss. (total 4 layers)

Note: You can also bake the cake in a 9" x 13" pan, and cut it in half crosswise before splitting into 2 layers.

Peel 6 ripe bananas. Cut into chunks, and place in a medium size bowl.

Add sugar to the bananas. Use a potato masher to mash the bananas. Stir, making sure the sugar is evenly distributed.

Put one layer of the cake on a serving plate. Add 1/3 of the banana mixture. Continue adding layers of cake and banana mixture, leaving the top layer of cake plain.

Optional: Place a doily on top of the cake. Dust with Confectioner's Sugar.

Carefully remove the doily.

Wrap with aluminum foil and store in the refrigerator.

Banana Cake - a Justice Family Tradition!
