I can't remember if I've posted this recipe here before or not. But it's good, and I'm making it again this week, so thought I'd share :-)

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3/4 cup butter
2 1/8 cups white sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 1/2 cups mashed bananas
Frosting:
1/2 cup butter -- softened
1 package cream cheese (8 ounces) -- softened
3 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. In a small bowl, mix mashed bananas with lemon juice, set aside. In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, cream 3/4 cup butter and 2 1/8 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in 2 teaspoons vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Stir in banana mixture. Pour batter into prepared pan.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and place directly into freezer for 45 minutes. This will make the cake very moist.
4. For the frosting: In a large bowl, cream 1/2 cup butter and cream cheese until smooth. Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add confectioners sugar and beat on low speed until combined, then on high until frosting is smooth. Spread on cooled cake.

NOTES : I had to cook this for more than hour to get it cooked through, but it was very moist. Toasted chopped walnuts on top would be a nice addition.

Becky,
If you take it directly from the oven and put it in the freezer, won't the pan crack? Your recipe sounds delish!

I suppose a glass pan might - I hadn't really thought about it. I use a 9x13 dark coated cake pan, I think it's made by Wilton.
