  3. In a large bowl, beat together butter and granulated sugar until combined

To make cream cheese frosting:
  1. In a medium bowl, beat together butter and cream cheese until smooth and creamy
  2. Add vanilla extract, powdered sugar a little at the time and heavy cream, beat together until you reach desired consistency (add more powdered sugar or heavy cream until desired frosting consistency is reached)
  3. Spread the frosting on the cooled cake garnish with banana slices and chopped pecans or walnuts if you desired
  4. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving
The cooking time on this cake can vary, mine takes about 40 minutes. The cake is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. If you find the top of the cake is browning too quickly in the oven, loosely cover it with aluminum foil.
