I am a BIG fan of banana bread and when I had some overripe bananas, I was going to whip up my go-to recipe but then decided to try something different.
I came across this recipe for banana cake that claimed to be the “best ever.” With a claim that strong, I had to put it to the test and it seriously turned out even better than I imagined.
It had some interesting instructions – a low bake time, putting it in the freezer as soon as you pulled it out of the oven.
I don’t know what would happen if you didn’t follow those instructions, but I will tell you that if you do follow the instructions, it makes for one amazing cake.
I topped mine with a vanilla buttercream frosting, but cream cheese frosting (or no frosting at all!) would be delicious also.
This is the perfect recipe to put those ripe bananas to use.
what is the best way to store these?
I love this recipe, and my family does as well, that we usually don’t have many leftover. However, if you do have some leftover, the best way to store them is putting them in the fridge.
We recommend placing them in an air tight storage container, and putting them in the fridge.
If you aren’t going to eat them for more than a week, we recommend freezing them. Again the best way to freeze them is placing them in an airtight storage container and putting them in the freezer.
They will last nicely in the freezer for about 2 weeks, and in the fridge, about 3-5 days.
To thaw them, we recommend placing them in the fridge overnight and serving them the next day. We don’t recommend microwaving them, because the frosting will melt.
