Banana Cake with Chocolate Frosting

This banana cake with chocolate frosting is super tender, moist, and decadent. A single-layer cake that’s super easy to make and frost!

I recently made banana cake with cream cheese frosting and knew that it would taste even better with chocolate buttercream frosting! This cake is without a doubt, one of my all-time favorites!


– ripe bananas – all-purpose flour – buttermilk – baking soda  – salt – unsalted butter – granulated sugar – brown sugar – eggs – ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and grease a 9×13 baking dish. In a large bowl, mix the all-purpose flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. Set it aside.

Add the bananas to a stand mixer and mix until smooth. Add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract until well combined.

Add the melted butter slowly and mix until well incorporated then add the eggs one at a time. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture alternating with the buttermilk. Don't overmix!

Pour the cake batter into the prepared baking dish and place it in the oven. Immediately reduce the heat to 275 degrees F and bake for 60 minutes.

Tips and Recipe Variations

- Once the cake is in the oven, decrease the temperature to 275 degrees F. - If the chocolate frosting is too thick, add more milk and mix it on high speed until fluffy.
