I love bananas! It’s like my partner in crime, and it’s the fruit that I always eat every day – as is or by incorporating it to my daily meals like pancakes, smoothies, and now this. Before I used to eat just banana cakes but with buttercream frosting it’s like a whole new level delicious! The cake is super moist, and the frosting is sweet but not too sweet plus it’s very easy to make. I mean what not to like? It’s a classic banana cake dress in a delightful frosting. Mouthwatering!

1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
