Banana Cake

Makes 18 servings

One of our family favorites! This Banana Cake is a fabulous way to use up very, very ripe bananas—in fact, the blacker the banana peels...the better the recipe tastes. This is a very moist cake which is easily made in a sheet pan so it works great for potlucks or picnics. It is very delicious! I have made this with all white flour; an alternate with all wheat flour and this way with a mix of both ~ cooking is about experimenting so have fun!


Sift together in large bowl:
1 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
1 cup All Purpose Flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice

Mix in:
1 cup Splenda Granular
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 1/4 cups Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Beat In:
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
2 cups Bananas, Mashed

Add In:
4 Eggs, one at a time

Beat In:
1/4 cup flaked Coconut
1/2 cup chopped Walnuts

Spread batter into 12x18 pan which has been sprayed lightly with Pam™.

Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow cake to cool. Cut into 18 squares and serve.

Frosting options:

  •  Frost with your favorite cream cheese frosting and 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts; 
  • Sift Splenda Powdered Sugar* over the top;
