  • Banana Foster Pound Cake

    On the old board there was a recipe for a pound cake that included using banana liquer in the recipe. Never copied the recipe ... was planning to do that when I located a small bottle of liquer ............sob, sob.. now can't find it in "search". Did anyone happen to copy this recipe?

    Suwannee, I think I have that recipe. Did you do a search here?

      Have done it twice and it has not come up. Would you kindly post it? It's amazing ............ probably have printed out a thousand (no exaggeration) recipes from here to try sometime in the future .. and this recipe was not printed because I did not have the liquer (sp?). Found a bottle but it was the big one and balked at buying it because I did not have more recipes to use with it. So now I'm ready ... and no recipe! As well, as they say ...snooze, you lose!

        I'm still you can imagine, I have stacks, and stacks, and stacks of recipes copied from here. I'll post it for you if I come up with it. Do you remember who posted it originally? I'll keep looking, because I know I printed it.

          You have stacks! So do I (smile, smile ..can't figure out how to add them). I think Southern Jewish Princess may have contributed this one ......... not positive .. BTW... she's missing .. haven't seen any posts from her.

            I posted this one a while back, and it is delicious!

            WOW! I am happy I found this site again. Where is everyone? I have missed all of you!


            3 sticks butter (butter)
            3 cups sugar
            5 large, fresh eggs
            3 overripe bananas (remove any dark spots)
            3 T. half & half
            1&1/2 t. good, pure vanilla
            3 cups flour (I use White Lily)
            1 t. baking powder (make sure it is fresh)
            1/2 t. salt

            PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees
            GREASE & flour your tube pan

            Cream the butter and sugar until light.
            Add the eggs, and beat one at a time.
            In another bowl mix combine the flour, BP, and salt.
            In another bowl mash the bananas with a masher. Add the vanilla and half & half to the banana, and mix well.
            Add half of the flour mixture to the creamed butter & sugar, and mix well.
            Add half of the banana mixture to the butter/sugar mixture.
            Add the remaining half of the flour mixture
            Add the remiaining banana mixture, and blend well.
            Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix well until batter is smooth.
            Spoon the batter into the prepared pan.
            Smooth on top and tap pan
            Bake in middle of the oven for half an hour.
            Then turn the pan 180 degrees, and bake for another 20 minutes or until done. Do not overbake. Use toothpick test.
            Allow cake to cool in pan for at least 15-20 minutes
            While cake is cooling make your glaze (which is delicious)!

            1 stick butter
            1/2 cup light brown sugar
            1 T. rum
            3 T. Banana liquer

            COMBINE the ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat, and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook for about three minutes and then take off the stove.

            Invert the cake on a rack or cake plate. Cool the glaze a bit then drizzle it over the cake. Allow to cool, then eat it!

            If you have any left over, cover the cake to keep it fresh.

                  Buckwheat - holy cow!!! Some of us were transferring recipes from the old site to here and I saw your post and alerted Stephanie. It is so nice to see you here. Glad you made it and I have to say that cake looks so darn good!!

                      Finally found this recipe

                      Sounds like other have had trouble getting from the former site to this new site. I found the Banana Foster's Pound Cake recipe in my files, but see I'm a little late. It's a keeper! I've been asked for the recipe many times. NOTE: I had to bake it a bit longer than the recipe states.

                        Thanks for the bump. I had already printed this! Not going to let it get away this time! Will let everyone know how this goes over -- have a huge bunch of pound cake fans at my house.
