SANDRA'S FINEST BANANA BUNDT CAKE EVER

What a fabulous dessert that's awesome the day it's baked,
and even more scrumptious the following day...
Servings: 12
Prep: 20 Mins.
Bake: 45-55 Mins.

INGREDIENTS:

1st Wet:
3 (medium) ripe bananas, mashed
1 tablespoon freshly-squeezed lemon juice

2nd Wet:
1 tablespoon freshly-squeezed lemon juice
1-1/2 cup 2% milk

Beat:
2/3 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed

3rd Wet:
3 large eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Dry (sift)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon table salt

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a bundt pan with baking spray; set aside.

In a small bowl, add the bananas with 1 TB lemon juice, and mash until combined; set aside.

In a 2-cup-glass-measuring-cup, add 1-1/2 cup milk and then 1 TB lemon juice (let activate for 5 minutes).

Meanwhile, in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the butter with both sugars for 3 minutes.  Add the beaten eggs and vanilla extract; mix to combine for 2 more minutes.

Stop mixer, and place a sieve over wet ingredients in mixing bowl. Add all the dry ingredients to sieve and sift over wet ingredients.

Restart mixer very slow and gently pulsing mix in, while pouring, the milk/lemon juice mixture. Add the banana/lemon juice mixture and then mix gently just until combined.

Use a spatula to scrape sides and bottom of bowl, folding to combine cake batter a few times by hand. Pour cake batter evenly into the prepared bundt pan.  Tap pan to remove air bubbles.

Bake for 45-55 minutes, turning bundt pant half way through baking, just until a toothpick inserted in center of bundt ring comes out clean (do not over bake or cake will become dry).

Let cake cool in bundt pan for 5 minutes on baking rack, then flip using baking rack and let rest on rack then dust while hot with powdered sugar (I place tin foil underneath baking rack to ease with clean up).  Let cake cool completely on baking rack before transferring to a covered cake pedestal/plate.


Serve with whipped cream, if desired. ~ Enjoy!
