  • Grease and flour a 9 x 13 cake pan. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.
  • Mix the mashed bananas and lemon juice together in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together.
  • Beat eggs into the butter and sugar mixture one at a time. Beat in vanilla.
  • Mix in the flour a little at a time, alternating with the buttermilk.
  • Stir in the mashed bananas and then pour batter into the prepared cake pan.
  • Bake for approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes. Start checking for doneness after about 1 hour by poking the center of the cake with a toothpick. When it comes out clean, the cake is done. Baking times may vary so check with a toothpick to be sure the cake is baked properly.
  • Combine the cream cheese and butter in a mixing bowl and beat until well blended.
  • Add in the powdered sugar and vanilla and beat until creamy smooth.
  • If the consistency of the cream cheese frosting is too thin, add a little more powdered sugar, starting with one or two tablespoons at a time until it is the desired consistency.
  • Spread frosting on the cake evenly.
