Delicious Banana Layer
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar (I used palm sugar)
2 eggs, seperated
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup plus 1 tbl buttermilk
2 cups all-purpose flour (I used 1 cup kamut flour and 1 cup all-purpose flour)
3 large ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup chopped pecans (don't cut them too small like I did)
Cream butter; gradually add sugar, beating well. (If using palm sugar, be sure to beat until the sugar is well mixed.) Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Dissolve soda in buttermilk; (I used vinegar to sour my milk, so I just added the soda to my flour) add to creamed mixture alternately with flour. Stir in mashed bananas and pecans.
Beat egg whites (at room temperature)until stiff peaks form; fold into batter.
Pour into 2 greased and floured 8-inch round cakes pans (I did a 9x13). Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cake in pans 10 minutes; remove layers from pans, and let cool completely. It will stick in a glass pan, I know this from experience!
