Banana Pound Cake Recipe

I know this has been a long, long overdue. I have promised you this recipe a couple of weeks ago and I never got around to it, so here it is. Sorry for the long wait.

You need:
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter (not margarine) softened
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup mashed bananas (ripe)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon extract
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup (8 oz) sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 to 4 tsp. milk or cream

  1. Spray a 12-in. fluted tube pan with Baker's Joy OR grease with some butter and sprinkle sugar, then set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Stir in bananas and extract. Combine flour and baking soda and add to the creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, beating just until combined.
  4. Pour into prepared pan (pan will be full and might and might over flow while baking, i suggest you place a baking mat or parchment paper under the tube pan).
  5. Bake at 325F for 75-85 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk glaze ingredients until smooth, drizzle over cake. Store in fridge.
