Banana Cake with Frosting

Sunday, May 24, 2009

Tonight there will be a gathering for dinner among a few friends in conjunction with my birthday and another friend of mine YH. So since this will a DOUBLE celebration, I had decided to bake a cake to bring over during the dinner. The cake that I had decided to bake is banana cake using the recipe from Pillsbury since I have a box of butter cake mix sitting quietly on my kitchen cabinet waiting to be 'summoned'.


1 box Pillsbury Moist Supreme butter cake mix
1 cup ripe banana, mashed
1 cup water
1/3 cup oil
1 cup water
3 eggs

1/2 cup butter
3 cups of icing sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3-5 tbsp milk


  1. Preheat oven to 180 Celsius. Grease bottom only 9 inch pan with butter.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, mashed banana, water, oil and eggs; beat with electric mixer at low speed until moistened. Beat 2 minutes at high speed. Pour batter into pan.
  3. Bake at 180 Celsius for 35-40 minutes or until cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely for about 1 hour.
  4. In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Cook 4 to 6 minutes, stirring constantly and watching closely; until butter just begins to turn golden (butter will get foamy and bubble). Remove from heat. Cool for 15 minutes.
  5. With electric mixer on low speed; beat icing sugar, vanilla and enough milk until frosting is smooth and desired spreading consistency. Frost cooled cake.
  6. Decorated the cake as you desired.
