Banana Cake, circa 1965, redux

This is from the Settlement Cookbook. It’s really good.  This is a second posting of this recipe. You can scroll down and see photos of my process, but here is the recipe again. It’s just so basic and good.

1/2 C butter, 1 1/4 C sugar, 2 eggs, 1 t baking soda, 4 T sour cream, 1 C mashed  bananas, 1 1/2 C cake flour, 1/4 t salt, 1 t vanilla

I never have cake flour, so here’s what I do. Measure out the flour as in the recipe, then take away 3 T of the flour and replace with 3/4 T of corn starch.

Okay, here’s how to make the cake. Dissolve the baking soda in the sour cream. Cream the butter with the sugar, added slightly beaten eggs, and add the sour cream/soda mix. Beat well. Add bananas, flour, salt, and vanilla. Mix well.  Bake in a well-greased and floured 9″ tube pan. Bake at 350F for 35 to 45 minutes. Test with a toothpick to see when done. Cool for a few minutes in pan before turning out onto a plate.

Sorry for the confusion with my photo. I didn’t take any of the banana cake but it pretty much looks like the sweet potato cake, ha ha ha!
