Banana Bread Cake

Servings: 14 pieces

Bake time: 30 minutes

Oven set to 350°F

This is one of my husbands favorite recipes. It’s a delicious recipe and doesn’t require much time. I’d like to give credit to my friend Natasha Tyrchik, I liked her idea of having the banana bread bake in a cake pan instead of a bread pan. I thought it was perfect, because it bakes quicker and in my opinion its a lot softer and moist. I usually don’t like banana bread, but I really enjoy this cake.


  • 1 stick soft unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1.5 tsp baking soda

  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup cranberries or raisins (optional)
  • Homemade Caramel Sauce and 1/4 cup pecans for decor.


  1. Prepare a 8″ inch square cake pan spray with butter or cooking spray.
  2. Beat the softened butter until nice and smooth (3-5 min).
  3. To the butter add 2 eggs, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract. Mix.
  4. In a separate bowl mix the baking soda and lemon juice, then add 3 tbsp of sour cream and have it sit for about 5 min. (Then add to the mixture)

  6. Finally add 1 cup of chopped pecans and cranberries (optional).
  7. Pour mixture onto the baking dish. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes until it has reached to a light brown color (use the toothpick test).
