I’m not much of a Banana fan but this cake looks absolutely delicious.  I’ve copy /pasted the below from a post by someone in Nebraska, USA on the site of “Taste of Home.” 

Sweet, buttery frosting and a sprinkling of chopped nuts top this yummy cake that’s loaded with banana and pecan flavor. Serve it with a steaming cup of coffee…or a cold glass of milk. — Marlene Saunders, Lincoln, Nebraska

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup mashed ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted

BUTTER PECAN FROSTING:

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Dash salt
  • 2 to 2-1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted
  • Additional chopped pecans, optional

Directions: In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture, beating just until combined. Fold in banana and pecans. Pour into a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.  In a small mixing bowl, cream butter. Beat in the milk, vanilla, salt and enough confectioners’ sugar to achieve spreading consistency. Stir in toasted pecans. Frost cake. Garnish with additional pecans if desired. Yield: 9 servings.
