  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. In a small bowl, mix mashed bananas with lemon juice, set aside. In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream 3/4 cup butter and 2 1/8 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in 2 teaspoons vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Stir in banana mixture. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and place directly into freezer for 45 minutes. This will make the cake very moist.
  4. For the frosting: In a large bowl, cream 1/2 cup butter and cream cheese until smooth. Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add confectioners sugar and beat on low speed until combined, then on high until frosting is smooth. Spread on cooled cake.

Baking a cake at a ridiculously low temperature (traditionally it's 350 degrees), then putting a hot cake right out of the oven into the freezer? What? I was tempted to simply bake this in the ...

The cake is just OK. The cooking time was 30 plus minutes off. The cake was too sweet, heavy,and not quite what I expect out of a cake. I like trying new recipes, so I am glad I tried it, but it...

This is my recipe, the temperature is not a mistake in the directions. It is to bake at a slow rate to keep the cake moist. This recipe has been made by tons of friends of mine over and over, no...

To anyone reading this, do not hesitate to make this cake. I think the cooking temperature and placing it in the freezer after baking is what makes this cake outstanding. I myself made a coupl...

I always make a recipe the first time without any changes. This was "country good", however this is more like a light banana bread in texture than that of cake, REAL HEAVY. By the second day we ...

I didn't think that a better recipe existed besides my grandmother's, but boy was I wrong! This banana cake was unbelievable. I took it to a family dinner and got rave reviews. Was told that ...

I think the baking temp should be 375 instead of 275 as listed here. After 1 hour at 275 it was not even close to being done.

THIS WAS DELICIOUS! I BAKED IT AT 375 DEGREES FOR 45 MIN. AND DIDN'T EVEN PUT IT IN THE FREEZER LIKE THE RECIPE SAID TO BUT IT WAS STILL MOIST. I'M SURE I'LL BE MAKING THIS ONE AGAIN.BIG HIT AT ...
