Hi everyone, I’m Carlee from Cooking With Carlee and truth be told, it is never a very hard sell for me to make a cake. In fact I have been known to celebrate the fact that it is Saturday by baking a Devilishly Good Chocolate Cake with the best every Shiny Fudge Frosting. It is decadent, chocolaty and delicious.

Living with a toddler can be rough sometimes. I know we can’t be the only ones who go through food phases, so I am sure some of you can relate. Recently we were sooooo into bananas.

My little man ate so many that we have to buy a couple of bunches a week and he was on a two banana a day rationing program. Then as fast as it started, we were done with bananas. DONE!

Now I am not one to let good food go to waste, but it doesn’t take long before we have a few brown bananas. So I take the lemon and turn it into lemonade, or take the overripe bananas and turn them into this banana bundt cake might be a more accurate description!

Luckily I have a lot of siblings who all gather together for dinner on Saturdays to help eat it, otherwise I’d be scared how much I’d eat of it on my own! I was tempted to bake up a tried and true banana cake favorite.

Ingredients you need:

  • ripe bananas
  • sugar
  • vegetable oil
  • eggs 
  • vanilla
  • flour
  • baking soda
  • cinnamon
  • salt

How to make banana bundt cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a large bundt pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mash the bananas until mostly smooth. Stir in sugar, vegetable oil, eggs and vanilla.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  4. Stir flour mixture into banana mixture until just mixed.
  5. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until it tests done.
  6. Cool for 15 minutes in the pan before turning out to cool completely.
  7. Dust with powdered sugar or drizzle with a simple powdered sugar and cream glaze (or both!)

You don’t have to know any fancy decorating techniques to make them something special. A fun pan and dusting of powdered sugar and you are in business. Add a little glaze and you are really golden.

That is perfect for a busy mom with no artistic talent like myself! So next time you find yourself with a few overripe bananas, go ahead and bake a cake!

  1. I found this cake recipe about 2 months ago and decided to bake it, we liked the idea of a cake and not bread. OMG it was so good that my hubby has been stocking our little freezer with bananas ever since . Guess what I’m baking tonight?! (I bet you guess right, and now your gonna check to see if you have bananas in your freezer too huh? Lol) Thank you for sharing this with us. I ice mine with a brown sugar/butter icing, supper delicious!

    1. Jaime, thank you for your lovely comment. A brown sugar butter icing sounds incredible! Makes me think of butterscotch. Thanks for the tip!

      1. Thanks so much! I baked it again tonight and I’m gonna put a powdered sugar glaze over it using some coconut milk I have left over! We love this dessert!!!

  2. 5 stars
    Solid recipe that yields a gorgeous cake. I butter my Bundt pan and then roll around ground almond and pistachios with white and brown sugar before putting in half the batter, swirling in more and then the rest of the batter with one last swirl. My daughter loves making it with me, and my wife and I love eating it 😂

  3. This is the third time I’m making this cake. Just love it! It’s so easy. The first time I added chocolate chips. It made a wonderful breakfast coffee cake. 2nd time I left out the chocolate chips and sprinkled the top generously with chopped pecans. It gave the cake a nice crunch, but I missed the chocolate chips. Today’s version will definitely have the chocolate chips added. I plan on making a version of this with raisins in the future. This cake is the best way to use up over-ripe bananas.

  4. 5 stars
    This is the ONLY banana bread recipe
    I will ever make again. I’ve made it at least 5 times at this point and am about to pop another in the oven. Absolutely the best! Thank you for the recipe.

  5. Looks delicious. Maybe it’s just me, but I think you should have taken the picture from a different angle or something. The recipe says it is a full size Bundt cake, but I can’t tell that from the picture. I have a set of Bundt cupcake pans exactly like that. The picture made it look like one of those on a single serve dessert plate.

    1. Thanks for your comment Steve. I can see where you are coming from. I’ll pass the word onto Carlee who wrote this great post. Let me know when you make the dish!

    1. Thank you Clariece for taking the time to leave a comment! I’m glad that you loved the cake and will plan on making it again! Happy eating!

  6. That looks really good. I’m a two banana a day girl just like Jaxon. Sometimes they just seem to get overripe. I love your recipe. No pudding mix added! Can’t wait to try it!
