Banana Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Banana Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Banana Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting aka Banana Bread Cake. Banana bread with frosting that also has yummy hints of spice. SO GOOD.

After I took this picture I added about a 1/4 chopped pistachios to the top. I think it would be good with chopped walnuts too.

Last Saturday some of my family members visited. Zandria and Paul, Angela with my two baby nephews (19 months and 3 months) and later on my Mom and little brother Isaac. My boyfriend also had some friends over that were jamming guitar and drums downstairs so between them and the babies it was quite a lively household…and a good excuse to make cake. I’m always looking for an excuse!

Banana Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 4 bananas
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup (12 T.) butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice

for the cinnamon cream cheese icing:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temp.
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temp.
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice

Method

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9” x 13” pan (I used 2- 9 inch round cake pans) with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, thoroughly mash the bananas. Add the sugar, butter, and sour cream, and stir to combine. Add the eggs one at a time, stirring to combine after each addition. Then stir in the vanilla.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and allspice.
  • Add half the flour mixture to the banana mixture, and stir to combine. Then add the other half of the flour mixture, stirring again. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until nicely browned and a toothpick comes out with no wet batter. The cake surface should bounce back when you press on it. Cool completely before frosting.

for the frosting:

  • With an electric mixer, combine all ingredients until smooth and creamy. Spread frosting evenly over cake. Slice to serve. Store any remaining cake in the refrigerator.
