  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 cups unbleached enriched all purpose flour
  • 1.5 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened ( I used coconut butter, slightly melted)
  • 2 cups dark brown sugar or white granulated sugar (You may also half white and half brown)
  • 3 Large eggs at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cups Buttermilk( add 1 tbsp lemon juice to 1 cup milk and leave it to stand for 10 min)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream( light or full fat) at room temperature
  • For Frosting:
  • 1 cups unsalted butter, softened
  • 2(8 ounce each) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups icing sugar(confectionary sugar)
  • For garnishing :
  • 2 tbsp Chopped walnuts
  • OR 1/2 cup coconut powder

How to make Moist Banana Buttermilk Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 9 inch pan.
  2. In a small bowl, mix mashed banana with the lemon juice. Set aside.
  3. In a medium size bowl, mix flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar using an electric mixer, until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Beat in the sour cream.
  5. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Stir in banana mixture. Beat till all the flour is incorporated and you get a smooth cake batter. Do not overmix.
  6. Divide and pour batter into the two prepared pans and bake in preheated oven for 45-55 min or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  7. Remove from oven, cover and place the cakes directly into the freezer for 45 minutes. This will make the cake very moist.
  8. For the frosting, cream the butter and cream cheese until smooth. Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Add icing sugar and beat on low speed until combined, then on high speed until frosting is smooth.(I did the frosting mixture by hand in a bowl).
  9. Fill and Spread on cooled cake, covering the sides and the top of the cake.
  10. For topping, sprinkle coconut powder or chopped toasted walnuts over top of the frosting, as desired.

My Tip:

To evenly bake cakes in 2 pans, bake them in the same level rack . Also, it is preferable to bake cakes in the middle rack. To prevent top cracking in the cake, avoid opening the oven door early in baking. Also the oven temperature should not be too high. If the temperature of the oven is too high, then the top of the cake cooks fast while the inside is still cooking. Hence it cracks.
