  • 2 count eggs
  • 1 cup bananas
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder


    1. Allow eggs to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, grease and lightly flour two 8x1 1/2 inch or 9x1 1/2 inch round cake pans, or one 13x9 baking pan; set aside.
    2. In a large mixing bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
    3. Add bananas, buttermilk, shortening, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined. Add eggs; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour batter into the prepared pans.
    4. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes for round pans, about 30 minutes for 13x9 pan, or until a wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool cake layers in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove cake layers from pans; cool thoroughly on racks. Or, place 13x9 cake in pan on wire rack; cool thoroughly. Frost with desired frosting.
