"My husband and I just LOVE your old-fashioned banana cake. We get it every year to celebrate big milestones! Please share the recipe." - Jodi

Thaw the frozen overly ripe bananas in a bowl of hot water. Remove the banana stems and delicately squeeze out the thawed bananas into a fine mesh strainer over a bowl, reserving the banana juice.


Mash the strained bananas until they are a fine puree without any chunks. Measure out 130 g banana puree to use in the cake.


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a ¼ sheet pan with parchment paper, then spray the bottom sides of the pan with nonstick cooking spray.


Add enough water to the reserved banana juice to make ¼ cup. Combine this, banana puree, and remaining wet Ingredients in a large bowl and whisk until smooth and well-blended.


Using a sifter or fine-mesh strainer, sift the dry ingredients into a separate large bowl. Whisk until well blended.
