Yummylicious Banana Cardamom Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

This is one of our favourite banana cakes. Seasoned with cardamom that complements bananas so beautifully, it is a perfect treat for the festive season! Of course, I love that the cake is eggless too. Usually when I make this cake in the afternoons for tea, I just dust it with some icing sugar! This time however to chase the rainy day blues away, I decided to indulge and frost it too:) The frosting recipe is very easy to do, just throw it all together and blend it and you are good to go.

1 cup + 4 tbsp all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3small bananas, ripe, mashed
3/4 cup sugar
4 tbsp butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup yogurt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cardamom powder 

Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 cup cream cheese, softened
2 tbsp butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup icing sugar

  1. Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, cardamom powder, and sugar.
  2. Add the mashed bananas, vanilla extract, butter, and yogurt.
  3. Blend all ingredients well.
  4. Pour into a baking pan and bake at 350F for 40-45 minutes.
  5. Remove and cool in the pan for 15 minutes and then on a wire rack until completely cooled.
  6. To make the frosting, blend together all the ingredients.
  7. Frost the cake as desired.
