Best Banana Cake

You might remember not long ago that I made a banana cake to take to ECFE for my birthday dessert... It was scrumptious and I vowed to definitely make it again. Then I found this recipe and although I really liked the frosting part of the other banana cake, I couldn't resist trying this one with a HOT FUDGE FROSTING!! Seriously?? Sounds delish!! It was really yummy, but I did end up liking the other recipe a lot better... You can try them both if you want and decide for yourself... They were both super easy to throw together and tasted fabulous! Sorry, no picture!! I've gotten better about dragging my camera out everywhere we go, but obviously I forgot it when we headed to my mom's for lunch this day...

Best Banana Cake
(Recipe found on pinterest via

1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups flour
1/2 cup buttermilk
3 brown bananas, smashed
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons hot fudge sundae topping, warmed
2 cups powdered sugar
1-2 tablespoons milk

In a large mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, salt and vanilla and beat until creamy. Stir in the bananas. Sift the flour, cinnamon and baking soda together and add to the banana mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Place cake mixture into a greased 9×13 pan and bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Frost with Hot Fudge Butter Cream.

For Frosting: Cream the butter, shortening, vanilla, dash of salt and warm hot fudge until creamy. Slowly add the powdered sugar until it is all incorporated. Add the milk to thin it out slightly.
