The Vintage Recipe Project
This vintage recipe for Banana Cake comes from The Kitchen Kapers Cook Book. Recipes compiled by The Woman’s Society of Christian Service First Methodist Church of Dover, Ohio. I did a little extra research and I believe this cookbook could be from as early as 1930. The recipe was submitted by Lulu Exline.
Vintage Recipe: Banana Cake
My version of this vintage recipe.
I made some slight changes to the vintage recipe above. Same ingredients, with the exception that I added one more banana and ½ tsp of salt.
1/2 tsp table salt
Mash 3 bananas in a medium sized bowl.
Cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time and beat until fluffy.
Add buttermilk and vanilla to the bananas and mix well.
Fold banana mixture into the sugar, butter and eggs and mix well.
Slowly fold flour mixture into the other ingredients. Fold until all ingredients are moist.
Pour batter into the prepared cake pans and bake for 30 minutes. Make adjustments to baking time according to your own oven.
