Banana Cake with Vanilla Bean Frosting

This is a good little cake, I love the vanilla bean little black speckles in the fluffy frosting.  The second picture is what I did with the cake batter the second time around, felt the need to put it in the waffle iron…YUM!

2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 egg
2 Tbl butter, softened
2 mashed super ripe bananas (about 3/4 cup)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda

2 Tbl butter, softened
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste (or equal amount of pure vanilla extract)
1¼ cups confectioner’s sugar

Preheat the oven to 375° (350° for glass pan).  For the cake, cream sugar, sour cream, egg, and butter.  Add mashed banana and vanilla.  Add flour, salt, and baking soda; mix well.  Pour into sprayed 8×8 pan.  Bake 20-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool completely before frosting.

For the frosting, cream butter and confectioner’s sugar together until smooth.  Slowly add heavy cream; stir until smooth.  Stir in the vanilla bean paste until fully incorporated.  Spread on cooled cake.  Recipe from

For the waffles, make cake batter as above.  Scoop into hot, sprayed waffle iron and cook just as regular waffles.  Remove waffles from waffle iron (won’t be crisp on outside yet), set on cooling rack for about 30 second to crisp.  Eat with butter and maple syrup.
