Equipment

  • 13x9-inch pan
  • spatula
  • toothpick
  • mixing bowls

Ingredients

For the Cake:

  • 1 1/2 cup sugar granulated
  • 1/2 cup butter softened, room temperature
  • 3 eggs room temperature
  • 1 large banana mashed
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon banana extract
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For Decorating the Cake:

  • 1 cup strawberry frosting homemade or storebought
  • 2 large bananas sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup pineapple tidbits drained
  • 1 cup maraschino cherries drained
  • 1/4 cup chocolate sauce
  • 1/2 cup walnuts chopped

Instructions

  • Cream together the sugar butter, eggs and banana. Add the buttermilk, banana extract and oil. Mix well.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Using a spatula and gently mixing by hand, add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients a little at a time, mixing until just combined after each addition. The batter should be smooth and completely combined, but avoid over mixing.
  • Pour into prepared (greased and floured) 9x13 inch baking pan. Bake at 350°F, for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool completely before frosting.

To Assemble and Decorate

  • Spread Strawberry frosting across cake once completely cooled.
  • Slice bananas and toss to coat in lemon juice (to keep them from browning quickly.)
  • Place banana slices, pineapple tidbits and maraschino cherries on top of cake. Sprinkle walnuts across cake. Drizzle chocolate sauce across entire cake.
