Banana bread is my absolute weakness! Many years I choose to have banana bread as my birthday dessert instead of cake. Now I don’t need to choose. I’ll just have my Mommy make this Buttermilk Banana Cake Recipe with Vanilla Buttermilk Glaze for me!

This banana cake recipe creates the best texture, in my humble opinion. And the vanilla buttermilk glaze makes this a truly incredible and indulgent dessert. I use one of my all-time favorite vanilla ingredients, Rodelle Vanilla Paste. Vanilla paste adds loads of vanilla flavor as well as those gorgeous vanilla speckles in the glaze.

  1. Wow this looks good!

  2. Nicole, I love how you adapted my family’s favorite buttermilk banana bread and made it into an incredible vanilla studded cake! That glaze is gorgeous with the flecks of vanilla!

  3. Beverley says:

    Nicole, this is a mouthwatering recipe and I’m not just saying that I really really mean it. Going to be making this at the weekend. Thank you xoxo

  4. Diane says:

    Want to print buttermilk banana recipe w buttermilk vanilla glaze. Where is the print recipe icon. Can’t find anywhere. Looks delicious

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Apologies Diane. My recipe formatting was on the fritz the last couple weeks. My tech gal helped me get it sorted out and it should be working now. There is a print button next to the recipe. Enjoy!

  5. Sona says:

    I only have 2 overripe bananas. will that be ok or will it alter the taste?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Sorry for the delayed response. I imagine those bananas are long gone. 2 bananas should work. The banana flavor will be more mild and the cake may not be as moist.

Speak Your Mind
