Banana Cake with Banana Frosting

LOVE this as an alternative to traditional cakes. This is what I made for mine and Ellie's birthdays this year and everyone liked it. Today, I made it into cupcakes, so that is what the picture will be of, but normally, it is baked in a 9 X 13.

2 1/2 c flour
1 1/3 c sugar
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c shortening
2 eggs (if you want to go eggless, substitute one extra banana per egg)
1/2 c buttermilk OR Sour Milk (1/2 T lemon juice + 1/2 c milk)
2 ripe bananas

Combine and pour into 9 X 13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.

Let cool and frost with this INCREDIBLE frosting:

1/4 c butter
2 tsp vanilla
1/3 c mashed banana
1/2 tsp salt
3 c powdered sugar
yellow food coloring

cream butter & vanilla, add rest

This cake should be refrigerated.
