Using two of our family's favorites, bananas and eggnog, I came up with this yummy cake! Very moist and flavorful!

  • Mix flour, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Beat margarine and white sugar together in a separate bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until fully incorporated; stir in 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. Stir butter mixture into flour mixture, alternating with eggnog, until well combined. Fold in bananas. Pour batter into prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack, about 1 hour.

  • Beat butter and cream cheese together in a bowl until creamy and smooth; beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Add confectioners' sugar; beat on medium-low speed with an electric hand mixer until combined. Spread frosting onto cooled cake.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Hello Bakers! Recipe creator here! A great way to spice up this recipe is to add Rum Extract instead of Vanilla extract to the icing mixture as well as a dusting of Nutmeg for an even closer Eggnog experience! Read More

Made this cake tonight. I am a novice cook and followed the directions exactly as written. The cake was done in one hour and came out perfectly. The house smells as delicious as this cake tastes! Read More

I loved the batter this recipe makes. It just feels right. I made this cake for my friend's birthday. I replaced half of the butter with applesauce (I know that sounds random but just hear me out) and then i baked it in two eight inch round pans. I then mixed a cup of peanut butter woth a cup of powdered sugar to make a firm and sweet peanut butter filling because bananas and peanut butter are bomb together. The moisture and density was brilliant and the flavor was THE tits. I love this cake recipe! Next time i might see if i can replace all the butter with applesauce rather than half to get a slightly more dense cake but that might effect the banana-nog flavor of the cake. I would add a photo of it but i frosted some foul language in cursive on the cake because i knew my friend would like that. Read More

I was looking for a recipe to use up the after Christmas eggnog and came across this one. Boy this exceeded our expectations! It was moist and landed an amazing flavor from the eggnog. I'll definitely be making this again! Read More

I made this for the first time today and this is my new favorite cake!! Of course I made some changes...but nothing major. I didn't have any eggnog so I had to make my own. I added spiced rum to the eggnog. I also had four bananas that I needed to get rid of so I probably put closer to 2 cups of banana. For the frosting I did not have any powdered sugar so I made my own frosting with 1/3c. butter 3/4c. brown sugar 8 oz. cream cheese a splash of rum and some almond extract. The finished product was a dense moist rich cake with great flavors (sweetness banana spice cream)and a very light whipped frosting...this was absolutely AMAZING! Read More

I made this cake exactly as written. Bake at 275 degrees for one hour. At the end of the hour it was not close to being done so I turned the oven up to 325 and baked another 8 minutes. Each oven is different so maybe your oven will bake it as written. For taste alone I would have given it 5 stars! I could not even wait for it to be frosted! It was moist and so very good. I would use a butter cream frosting instead of cream cheese frosting but that is personal preference. This is a keeper! Read More

I rated this five stars because it was so easy and tasty. I was searching for a recipe to utilize our leftover holiday eggnog and found this. My six year old and I made this cake and brought it to a new year party. The reviews were all positive. It needed more than an hour at 325 though. I gave it another ten minutes. The best part was getting everyone to guess the mystery ingredient! Read More
