Banana Cake

Groom’s Cake

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp. milk
  • 1 ½ cups light brown sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ground ginger

For the Frosting:

  • 7 oz. cream cheese
  • 2/3 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8 inch round cake pan, then line the bottom with waxed paper. Roughly mash the bananas in a large bowl, then beat in the eggs. Stir in the oil and milk. Break up any lumps in the brown sugar, then stir it into the banana mixture until well combined. Sift the flour and spices over the mixture, then fold in. Tip the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. To make the frosting, beat together the cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar and lemon juice until smooth and creamy, then spread over the cooled cake.
