Have a bunch of too-ripe bananas that nobody will eat? Don’t want to throw them out? Well, here’s a recipe that was supposed to be banana bread but somewhere along the line I made a mistake & it ended up a slow-cooker banana cake. My youngest son declares it a winner! Feeds 8 – 10. Costs less than $10.
To make slow-cooker banana cake, you’ll need:
• 3 ripe bananas, mashed
• 2 eggs
• 1/2 cup soft/melted shortening
• 3/4 cup sugar
• 1/4 cup milk
• 1/4 tsp. lemon juice
• 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 tbsp. baking powder
• 1/2 tsp. salt
To make slow-cooker banana cake, follow these directions:
1. Combine bananas, eggs, shortening, sugar, milk, & lemon juice in one bowl. Use mixer on low speed until blended.
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, & salt. Stir with a spoon.
3. Add flour mixture to banana mixture, mixing on low speed until blended.
4. Coat slow-cooker with non-stick spray.
5. Pour batter into slow-cooker.
6. Cover and cook on HIGH for 1 1/2 hours or until edges start to brown & a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
7. Turn off slow-cooker & let cake cool for about 30 minutes before cutting into servings.
8. Serve warm or not.
Please keep in mind that cooking times may vary so the first time you make a recipe, keep an eye on the slow-cooker. You may need to adjust the amount of cooking time.

Good morning Shelli xo
This recipe sounds yummy. Guess what? I have a few bananas that will be perfect for tonight’s dessert LOL
Have a fun week!
Hi Sandy! And a good afternoon to you! It is yummy & a GREAT use of those bananas that nobody will eat. Hope you enjoy it. Have a great week back. Cheers! xoxo
Hi, Shelli! Haven’t been around much lately but working on getting back to my normal schedule. This cake looks delicious! I’m going to have to see if I can play with it so it will work with a gluten-free flour. Of course it also looks like a peanut butter cake my mom makes, so I may have to play around with that recipe, too.
Thanks a lot, Shelli. I’m going to be living at the pool now. 🙂
Hey lady! I was just thinking about you the other day & wondering how you were doing. Glad to hear things are getting back to normal for you. I love the new profile pic, btw. You know, I’m not a fan of bananas & even I liked the cake. It really is delicious! Living at the pool? How awesome is that. Have fun!
Hi Shelli. I don’t bake, but now I’m really in the mood for this cake! 🙂
Hi David! Well, no baking involved as it’s in a crock-pot. 😀 Let me know if you give it a try. Cheers!
If I may quote the grand poo bah Koolaid pitcher: Ohhhhh yeaaaaah! 😀
Maureen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s so lovely to see you. Yes, you may quote Koolaid & yes, it is that good. 😀 Cheers, darlin.
It looks so yummy. 🙂
I wish I can do it on my own.
Hi Farouk! *waves* It is yummy. It’s also easy to do on your own if you have a crock-pot. Cheers!
Yum! Another great recipe. Thanks Shelli!
Hi Kate! You are welcome! Let me know if you give it a shot. 🙂
Sorry to be so English but what is a crock pot? The cake sounds so good & I would like to try it!
It’s also called a slow cooker. It’s basically a ceramic bowl sitting inside a heating element. You toss ingredients in the bowl, stir, cover, & let it slow cook for a long time. It tends to make cakes really moist because the water content stays inside the crock-pot. I’m sure you can make the recipe in the oven, too. I just haven’t so you’d have to experiment with time & temperature. Hope that helps. Cheers to you!
