Lala's Glazed Banana Nut Cake Recipe
2 sticks unsalted butter (room temp)
1 c. sugar
5 ripe medium bananas
3 c. flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 pinch salt
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 c. chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F. Cream the butter, sugar, and eggs together in a large bowl. Break the bananas into small pieces into the same bowl. Set aside, and in a smaller bowl mix the flour, salt, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon together. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and then mix with an electric mixer at a low speed till well incorporated. YOU WANT SOME VISIBLE PIECES of bananas. Now fold in the walnuts. Pour into a greased 9X11 glass pan, and put in the oven. Bake for 40-45 minutes (or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean).
Allow to cool and when finished cooling apply the glaze (recipe below)
In a sandwich baggie, fill half way with powdered sugar, add a tsp of vanilla extract, add milk to the sugar and mix until it forms a nectar thick glaze.
Cut a small triangle out of the baggie corner
