Banana and Candy Pecan Cake

Banana and Candy Pecan Cake

I had a couple of ripe bananas to use up so I decided to make a recipe for banana cake I found on MyRecipes. I loved that it used no butter or oil and that it was quick and easy to prepare. I decided to throw in some extra candied pecans that I had leftover. It smelled amazing while it baked and looked amazing when it came out of the oven. I let it cool before sprinkling the top with powdered sugar. Needless to say, my kids were thrilled to come home from school to this cake. It was moist, tender, and super flavorful and both of my kids loved it.

Banana and Candy Pecan Cake

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9 inch square baking pan with cooking spray.

Beat the eggs, sugar, sour cream, mashed bananas, and vanilla together with a mixer until creamy. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves until mixed well. Slowly stir flour mixture along with the chopped candied pecans into the banana mixture until well combined. Scrape batter into the prepared baking pan.

Place into the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the top springs back when gently pressed and a skewer inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs attached. Remove from the oven and let cool. Dust with powdered sugar before cutting into squares and serving. Enjoy.
