Banana Nut Cake!

This "Banana Nut Cake" is a really good cake that is easy to make.  It's great for a coffee cake or breakfast cake.  If you like the ever famous Honey Bun Cake or banana bread or banana nut muffins, this cake is for you!   Here is what you will need for this cake:

1/2 cup  butter (1 stick)
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2  1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup buttermilk
3 ripe bananas, mashed
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped

2 cups powdered sugar
6 Tbs. half and half (you can use milk)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar.  Beat in eggs one at a time.  In a separate bowl sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.    Gradually add to creamed mixture.

Mix in buttermilk, bananas and vanilla.   Fold in 1 cup chopped pecans.  

Pour into a Bundt pan that has been liberally sprayed with nonstick spray for baking.  The spray with flour in it, like Baker's Joy, works best for this or you can grease and flour the pan.    Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes or until a pick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan, before turning out onto a cake plate.

Combine the glaze ingredients and drizzle over the cake.  This will run down the sides and onto the plate some, so use a cake plate that is big enough to allow room for this.   Sprinkle the top with 1 cup chopped pecans. 

Slice and Serve!
