Ingredients
  

CAKE
CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened (I use 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese)
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 5 cups powdered sugar

Instructions
 

CAKE
  • Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  • Lightly grease a 9x13 glass baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl beat butter on high until creamy; about 30 seconds.
  • Add sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; beat until combined.
  • Add egg, mashed bananas, sour cream and vanilla; beat until incorporated.
  • Mix in the flour; continue to mix until combined.
  • Stir in pecans.
  • Transfer batter to previously prepared baking dish and, using an offset spatula, spread batter evenly.
  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
In the meantime, prepare the Cream Cheese Frosting.
  • In your mixer's bowl, combine cream cheese, butter and vanilla; mix until fluffy and completely combined.
  • Slowly add powdered sugar, about 1/3-cup at a time; continue to mix until smooth and thoroughly incorporated.
  • Remove cake from oven and let cool on a wire rack.
  • Frost cooled cake with previously prepared Cream Cheese Frosting.
  • Cut and Serve.
