Going Bananas For Bananas!
No banana cake recipe would be complete without lots of banana flavor! To add the most flavor, I use a combination of banana extract and fresh bananas for the sponge cake and for the filling. This combination of extract and fruit is the best way to get fruit flavor. The fresh fruit adds texture and the extract really intensifies the flavor!

Cream Cheese Frosting
This easy cream cheese frosting recipe is the best choice for this cake! My simple recipe yields a super creamy and fluffy buttercream that perfectly complements the banana flavor. For best results, make sure both the cream cheese and butter are at room temperature. If the two ingredients are different temperatures, the frosting will end up having clumps of either butter or cream cheese, whichever is colder. Also, I recommend sifting the confectioner’s sugar before adding.
