Banana Cake

Recipe from Doris Durham

1 ¾ c. flour

1 t. soda

½ t. salt

¾ c. margarine

1 ½ c. sugar

3 eggs

3 mashed bananas


Sift together flour, soda, and salt.  Cream shortening and sugar.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.  Add Banana.


No baking directions included with recipe.  Grandma uses cream cheese frosting (probably the same one as for the carrot cake recipe, except minus coconut and pecans.  She actually might have some mashed banana in the icing?  I can’t remember…would the banana turn brown?)
