banana nut cake with banana nut frosting...

  when mom ask me what kind of cake i wanted her to make, it was always a banana nut cake with banana nut icing.
  i found the recipe on a blog named "a real susie homemaker".  Her name is Susan Campbell and she's from south mississippi.  My kinda girl.  Her recipe seemed to be very close to what I remember moms being.  So we gave it a try.  Here is Susan's blog link.

the only change from her recipe i made was to add 1 tsp of vanilla to the icing.

cake mix:

1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
4 tbs buttermilk
1/2 cups pecans crushed
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup mashed bananas/ about 2 bananas
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups flour

cream the shortening & sugar.
add eggs & beat well.
sift dry ingredients together & add with the buttermilk.
add bananas, pecans & vanilla.
pour batter into greased floured pans & bake @350 for 30 minutes.
cool cake on racks & ice up the cake.

banana icing:

1/2 to 3/4 stick melted butter
1 lb. confectioner sugar
1 banana mashed/ about 1/2 cup
1/2 cup pecans crushed
1/2 tsp vanilla

mix until you get the right consistency for your liking.
ice up your cake and enjoy.
thanks so much Ms Susan Campbell.
