Banana Spice Cake

A foolproof, crowd-pleasing dessert

by Michelle Medford

What you’ll need:


3 ripe bananas

2 eggs

2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

½ cup butter

½ cup milk

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp lemon juice

½ tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp nutmeg

½ tsp cloves

1 tsp vanilla

What to do:


This is the kind of recipe that you can literally throw together and it will turn out perfectly. First, sift flour into a large bowl. Combine with sugar, baking soda, baking powder and spices.

Add remaining ingredients and combine. I know, this sounds like I’m skipping over a bunch of more complex steps, but it’s actually that simple.

Hint: It’s helpful to use a potato masher to break up pieces of banana.

Pour into a floured 9-inch round pan. A loaf pan also works nicely. Bake at 400°F for about 45 minutes.

Let cool before cutting. Dust lightly with icing sugar and enjoy!
