Banana Cake

If I had to pick one food that represented my childhood to me, it would be this Banana Cake made by Grandma. Well, this or homemade chicken noodle soup. The secret is in the sour cream.

1-1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda (dissolve in sour cream)
4 T sour cream
1 cup banana pulp (mashed)
1-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt

Cream butter & sugar, add eggs until and beat until very light. Add the soda dissolved in sour cream. Beat well. Then add the bananas, flour, salt and vanilla. Mix well. Bake in well-buttered oblong pan in moderate oven. Frost with lemon butter frosting.

Hi. I have found that although I would really love to use a recipe that you post, I often have a hard time seeing it. I will try to make the photos bigger. Neat blog.
