Moist Banana Cake

Heres a recipe I found on the web for the most moist Banana Cake I have ever tasted the reason why its so moist once the cakes are done you put them straight into the freezer delicous you must try.

Moist Banana Cake.

1 ½ cups ripe bananas (mashed)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 cups flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
¾ cup butter (softened)
2 1/8 cups sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 ½ cups buttermilk
Cream cheese frosting-
½ cup butter (softened)
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (softened)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 ½ cups icing sugar
Walnuts (chopped, for garnish)

Step 1: Pre-heat the oven to 275 degrees. Grease 2, 8” round baking pans.
Step 2: In a small bowl mix mashed bananas and lemon juice. Set aside. In a medium bowl mix flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl cream ¾ cups butter and 2 1/8 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in vanilla extract. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Stir in banana mixture.
Step 3: Evenly pour batter into 2, 8” round baking pans. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Between those times keep checking on the cake with a toothpick to see if it’s done. When the cake is done take the baking pans and place them directly into the freezer for 45 minutes to cool.
Step 4: While cake is cooling, to make the frosting- In a bowl cream the butter and cream cheese until smooth. Beat in vanilla extract. Add icing sugar a little at a time and beat on low until combined. Then beat on high until smooth.
Step 5: Remove the cake from the pans and lay out the bottom half on a plate. Spread it fully with frosting. Add the top half and cover the entire cake with frosting. Add chopped walnuts on top.
