Banana Pound Cake

Banana Pound Cake Recipe. Sweet pound cake with flavored mashed bananas. 

Banana Pound Cake

Pound cake! Yes, it is fantastic for dessert or with a cup of tea or coffee for breakfast. I eat a lot of desserts for breakfast. What is the difference between eating a slice of this cake or eating a donut? Actually, there is a difference this cake has mashed bananas in it. Breakfast approved!


If you like pound cake and banana bread you will love this marriage of Banana Pound Cake. In my house, I am the only one who likes banana baked goods. Seriously, I don’t know what is wrong with the rest of the family! Anyway, as much as I would love to live off of banana pound cake for a few days my will power comes in and reminds me that other vital food groups must be consumed for a healthy balance. I slice the cake in what would be three-piece sized chunks, wrap the individual chunks in plastic wrap, place them in a freezer bag and freeze them for another time.
