|One layer 9" Cake Just Right for the Two of Us.|
Ingredient List for Banana Cake and Frosting:
3 ripe bananas mashed
3/4 C. sugar
1/2 C. packed brown sugar
2 large eggs at room temperature
1/2 C. canola oil
1/2 C. sour cream
fresh zest of 1 orange
1 t. vanilla
2 C. flour
1 t. soda
1/2 t. kosher salt
1/2 C. chopped walnuts
Place the bananas and sugars in the bottom of a large mixing bowl and beat well on low speed. While the mixer runs on low add the eggs, oil, sour cream,zest, and vanilla. Mixing well.
In a separate bowl combine the flour, soda, and salt. Whisk together and add the nuts tossing them to coat well. This should help keep them afloat in the cake batter. Add the flour and nuts to the batter and mix until all ingredients are wet and combined. Do not over mix.
Pour the batter into the prepare pan and bake for 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it sit undisturbed for 15 minutes. Then remove from the pan and finish cooling on a rack. Yield 8 servings.
Ingredient List for Cream Cheese Frosting for 9" One Layer Cake:
6 oz. cream cheese at room temperature
6 T. butter at room temperature
1 t. good vanilla extract
2 1/2 C. sifted confectioners sugar
1 T. powdered egg whites
pinch of salt
This is a tall one layer cake and I would NOT advise you to bake in in the older style 9" x 1 1/2" cake pan. It think would run over the sides of the pan. The newer pans are 2" tall or use a spring form pan.
