Looking for something good to do with those bananas that are about to go bad?  This Banana Cake recipe was my grandmother’s recipe and it is soooooo good.  My kids love it and ask for it anytime the bananas on the counter are getting dark!

Savage Family Banana Cake Recipe

2-1/4 c. flour
2-1/2 t. baking powder
½ t. baking soda
½ t. salt
¼ c. sugar
½ c. Crisco
3 or 4 very ripe bananas
1 t. vanilla
2 eggs
½ c. buttermilk or sour milk (we do ½ c. milk and stir in 1 tsp of vinegar to make it sour)

Bake in greased and floured 9 x 13 pan until surface springs back gently when pressed with fingers (usually about 40 minutes—the cake may not be brown in color—it may still have a very light color to it)

Icing (this is the best part!)
1/3 c. soft butter or margarine
3-1/2 c. powdered sugar
3 or 4 Tbsp. milk
1-1/2 t vanilla
¼ t. almond extract

Blend together and frost on cooled cake.
