this recipe is not altogether light and fluffy but...OMG, it's fantastic! just tried it a few days ago and it is spot on. I made it as a layered cake vs sheet...two 9" x 2" rounds.

This is so good, not at all like a banana bread, very moist

INGREDIENTS

2 cups sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sour milk or buttermilk
1 cup mashed bananas (2 to 3)
1/2 cup shortening
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 bananas, sliced

Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together.

Add milk to mashed bananas.

Cream shortening with sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and beat well.

Add sifted dry ingredients and milk mixture alternately in small amounts, beating well after each addition. Stir in flavoring.

Pour into two (8-inch) greased cake pans and bake in moderate 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Cool.

Put layers together with banana frosting and sliced bananas. Spread frosting over top and sides of cake and garnish with sliced bananas.

Makes two 8-inch layers

I made a WONDERFUL banana cake this past weekend!!!  Not heavy or dense.  But, light and moist.  Perfect for an old fashioned banana caramel layer cake.  I finally perfected my caramel.  It is soft and melts in your mouth and has not one single sugar crystal in it.  Smooth and silky and not crunchy like a good caramel cake should have.  With all the depth of flavor one could ask.

 

I only had 1 cup of sugar so I subbed 1/2 light brown sugar.  Instead of AP flour I used cake flour(which I always do) and I added 1/2 tsp of baking powder.

 

If you would like to try it here's the link
