From the Test Kitchen

*TIp:

If you don't have buttermilk on hand, substitute sour milk in the same amount. For the 3/4 cup of sour milk needed, place 2-1/4 teaspoons lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Add enough milk to make 3/4 cup total liquid; stir. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes before using it in a recipe.

Cream Cheese Frosting

Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, softened, and butter, softened, with an electric mixer on medium speed until mixture is smooth. Beat in sifted powdered sugar and vanilla until combined. Makes about 2 cups.

I've been baking this cake for 35 years - it became my job at 14; every Saturday with any remaining of the week's banana. I don't usually frost this one, never really felt like it needed it. But a caramel pecan glaze will take this to a whole new level. It's definitely cake, not banana bread and is great with a cup of coffee or for dessert.
