Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Baking Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes


For the Heavenly Cake:

  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 medium ripe bananas
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the Irresistible Frosting:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Prepare the Pan: Grease and flour two 9-inch cake pans. Optionally, line the bottoms with parchment paper for easy removal. Set aside.
  2. Whip Up the Cake Batter: In a mixing bowl, blend softened butter and sugar until creamy. Add the egg and vanilla, beating until well combined. Toss in the bananas (you can mash them beforehand, but a stand mixer can do the job). Integrate the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Bake to Perfection: Divide the batter equally between the prepared pans. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 25 minutes. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes before transferring them onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
  4. Craft the Irresistible Frosting: For the frosting, beat butter until fluffy. Incorporate powdered sugar and ground cinnamon. If needed, add a splash of milk. Beat for 5 minutes or until reaching the desired creamy consistency.
  5. Assemble the Masterpiece: Place one cake layer on a cake plate. Spoon a generous amount of frosting over the layer and smooth it out. Top with the second cake layer and repeat the process, creating a delicious frosting layer on top. Use a spatula to gracefully spread the frosting around the sides of the cake.
  6. Slice and Savor: Once frosted to perfection, slice and serve this divine banana cinnamon delight cake to delight taste buds!
