Buttermilk Banana Bread Bundt Cake

This is a gorgeous banana bread cake that we very much enjoyed recently! It bakes up perfectly tender, with a lightly crisped edge and if you like walnuts definitely throw some into the batter. No one in my house will eat them, so I always have to leave them out of banana bread. 

It seems we always have overripe bananas ready to either be used up, or go in the freezer in this house, so I always have my eyes open for a must-try new banana based recipe. I have made so many variations of banana bread, and I'm always ready for new ideas! Banana bread never lasts very long in my house. I can always count on that - it's a pretty safe bet with my crew.

Look how perfectly golden that beautiful outside gets, and how moist and tender the crumb is. Yumm! I could definitely go for a warm slice right about now! 

Buttermilk Banana Bread Bundt Cake

¾ cup butter, room temperature
1 ½ cups white sugar
3 large eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¾ cup 1% buttermilk
2 cups mashed ripe bananas

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a bundt pan with nonstick baking spray and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the softened butter and white sugar together until light and fluffy - about 3 minutes. Add eggs in, one at a time, until well incorporated. Blend in vanilla.
  3. Blend in the mashed bananas.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients: flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg. Whisk to combine.
  5. Alternate dry ingredients with the buttermilk, until batter is fully combined. Do not overmix.
  6. Pour batter into prepared bundt pan.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for about 45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. 
  8. Cool in pan for 15 minutes before inverting and allowing cake to complete cooling on a wire rack.
