Banana Cake With Vanilla Bean Frosting

Banana Cake with Vanilla Bean Frosting

Cake Ingredients:

· 2/3 cup sugar

· ½ cup sour cream

· 1 egg

· 2 tablespoons butter, softened

· 2 mashed ripe bananas (about ¾ cup)

· 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

· 1 cup flour

· ¼ tsp salt

· ½ tsp baking soda

Frosting Ingredients:

· 2 tablespoons butter, softened

· ¼ cup heavy cream

· ½ tsp vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract

· 1 ¼ cups confectioner’s sugar

Preheat the oven to 375 F. (350 F for a glass pan.) Mash your bananas. (I did this in my mixer but the recipe is easily mixed together by hand.) Cream bananas together with the sugar, sour cream, egg, 2 tablespoons softened butter, and vanilla. Add flour, salt, and baking soda, and mix well. Pour into a greased 8 x 8 pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.

To make the frosting, cream butter and confectioner’s sugar together until smooth. Slowly add the heavy cream and stir until smooth. Stir in vanilla. Spread on cooled cake.
