1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 banana, mashed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 180C. Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake tin. I used square. no big deal.
2
In a medium bowl, cream together white sugar and butter. Add eggs and mashed bananas.

Frosting Method:
6
Cream together butter and sugar. Mix in mashed banana, pecans, coconut and vanilla. It was a bit thick at this point, so I added soy milk one teaspoon at a time until it was spreadable and mixed thoroughly. You can use regular milk, but I never have it.
