Banana Cake

A great recipe for wonderfully moist cake. I had to try to take a picture of it before it all disappeared. :)

2 Cups Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
3/4 Cup Butter or Margarine (I use oil)
1 1/2 Cups Sugar
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla
1 Cup(3) Bananas, mashed
1/2 Cup Sour Milk

Sift together flour, soda, powder and salt.
Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in bananas and vanilla.
Blend well.
Add dry ingredients alternately with milk.
Pour into one 13x9 pan.
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until tests done in center.

Maybe using oil instead of butter helps to make it extra moist. Mine was awesome.
Also My cake was done a few minutes early so make sure to check it during the last while. :)

Cream Cheese Icing
1 pkg Cream cheese
4 tsp Cream, or milk
2 tsp Vanilla
1/4 tsp Salt
4 1/2 Cups Icing Sugar
Blend all together and spread on cake. (I didn't even have milk and just used water for the icing. I just put a little bit at a time so it didn't get runny and it tastes great!)

I thought that was a given when you bake a cake. I will make the appropriate changes.
