A slice of heaven. Banana Cake

Banana Cake, the BEST!!
My second favorite cake is this one, my first is the Peanut Butter cake. As with several recipes in my book, they are written in Grandma Dugan's handwriting. It may be hard to read, but it's definitely worth keeping as is. (I have it in an easier form below)

2 large or 3 small mashed banana's (aprox 1 c)
1/2 c marg
1 1/2 c sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
1/4 c buttermilk or sour milk (if you don't have sour milk, add a touch of lemon juice to
some milk and wait for it to curdle)
Mix together well
2c flour
1/2 t baking powder
3/4 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
Pour into a greased 9x13 pan
Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or till spongy
Once it's cooled top it with some Banana frosting
Banana frosting
1 banana
1 lb powdered sugar (aprox 2 -3 cups)
1 t vanilla
3/4 c of melted butter
mix and add enough milk to make it just runny.
Pour over the cake, and let it cool a bit more, so the frosting thickens. I like to poke the cake and let the frosting run inside of it too.
And ENJOY!!!!
It's also delicious with cream cheese frosting (omit the banana and butter and use cream cheese instead)
