Honey Banana Cake (Vintage Recipe)

My grandmother didn't have much of a sweet tooth, but she loved to make banana cake.  Quite often when we went to visit she would have a pan of banana cake, slathered in maple frosting, waiting in the kitchen.  Then I discovered this handwritten recipe for banana cake among my great-grandmother's recipes.


  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup honey (or maple syrup)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups spelt flour (or whole wheat)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp arrowroot flour (or cornstarch)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ⅓ cup softened butter
  • ⅓ cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • pinch of salt
  • Step by Step Directions
