If you’re craving banana cake but don’t have much time, try this easy 4 ingredient banana cake. A semi homemade cake with chocolate frosting.
Bananas are ideal for making cakes. Not only do they add flavor, but they really add extreme moisture to cakes, whether from scratch or semi homemade.
Today we’re not only sharing a cake with fresh fruit, but also an easy cake.
One thing I love about box cake mixes is how versatile they are. With just a few ingredients (that you most likely have in your pantry), you can throw together an easy cake of just about any variety.
In this easy banana cake there are 4 ingredients:
The best bananas for baking have quite a bit of black on them. When the bananas are overripe with a lot of spots, the bananas will be sweet, full of flavor and easy to mash.
Yes! We baked this cake in a stoneware pan. Cakes bake perfectly in stoneware, but you do have to watch the time. Because the stoneware has to heat, the cake will take a few minutes longer to bake through.
If you choose to use a glass pan or metal pan the cake may not take quite as long to bake.
You can also frost the cake with cream cheese frosting, whipped cream or simply dust the cake with powdered sugar.
After you bake a banana cake, it is safe to store at room temperature. Simply cover the cake or place it in a storage container to keep as much air out as possible.
Yes! This cake freezes well. The bananas help keep the cake moist. Be sure to seal the cake well before freezing.
When you are ready to eat the cake, pull the container out of the freezer. Allow the cake to come to room temperature before opening the container. This helps keep the moisture into the cake.
