Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch cake pan with parchment paper.

Step 2

To make the batter: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or using a hand mixer or bowl with a whisk) add the cane sugar, butter, canola oil, and banana. Mix on low until combined and there’s so butter chunks.

Add the milk, flour, baking powder, sea salt, and cinnamon in that order. Mix on low until combined into a smooth batter.

Step 3

Transfer to the prepared baking pan and bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely in the cake pan. *For high altitude, make sure to follow instructions in the Noes at the bottom of the recipe.

Step 4

To make the icing: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or using a hand mixer) add the shortening, powdered sugar, and chopped strawberries. Mix on low until combined and then speed mixer up to high and whip for 1 to 2 minutes, until light and fluffy.

Step 5

Remove the cake from the pan onto a cake stand or plate. Transfer the icing to the top of the cake and spread evenly. Top with sliced strawberries.

FAQ's

Why are overly ripe bananas best for baking?

When bananas begin to ripen, their starches turn into sugars. This provides a sweeter flavor with a more pronounced banana flavor. Plus, mashing up mushy bananas are a whole lot easier for incorporating into baked goods without big chunks!

Can I make this cake gluten free?

Yes! If you want to make this gluten free, just look at the Notes at the bottom of the recipe for my gluten free instructions. I even link the flour that this was tested with.

Can I make this cake vegan?

While I haven't tested this cake vegan, I'm confident that you totally could make this vegan by swapping out the butter for vegan butter, milk for coconut milk, and sour cream for either vegan sour cream or vegan yogurt. If you make this vegan, let me know how it turns out with these swaps!

How should I store this cake?

This cake should be stored in an airtight container in the fridge because it's made with fresh strawberries.
