1 9-inch square cake


  • 1 ¼ cups white sugar

  • ½ cup butter

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ cup sour cream

  • 1 cup mashed bananas

  • 1 ½ cups cake flour

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9-inch square pan.

  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light. Add eggs and beat well. Dissolve soda in sour cream and add it to butter mixture. Beat well. Add mashed bananas and mix in. Add cake flour and mix well. Stir in vanilla extract. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


You can use all-purpose flour instead of cake flour in a pinch. If you prefer a less sweet cake, try reducing the sugar to 1 cup.
