Print this out and go stick it in the family Bible. Your grand children will thank you.

Once upon a time I needed to use up some ripe bananas. I also needed to take a cake to a church activity that night so…. I googled banana cake and found this recipe. The recipe claimed to be the best ever. I gave it a shot. Turns out it really was the best banana cake I’d ever had.

Over the passing years I’ve tweaked the recipe just a little to better fit my cooking style and I gotta admit, I like it a little better my way.

….and I also feel like it is really important to cook it in a Bundt Pan.

One of the most important steps in this recipe is freezing the cake (in the pan) immediately after removing it from the oven. I put a hot pad down in my freezer so the hot pan won’t defrost anything.

It looks like this when I take it out. Run a knife along the edges and around the center tube before turning it out onto your cake stand or plate.



  • ½ cup softened butter
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • 2⅛ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1½ cup buttermilk, (i use sour milk* or ½ plain yogurt half milk if I don’t have butter milk)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ cups smashed very ripe bananas, I use 3 or 4 bananas


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Grease and flour a bundt pan and set aside
  3. Smash the bananas and mix in the 2 tsp of lemon juice and set aside
