Sour Cream Banana Bundt Cake

Sour Cream Banana Cake

I had three ripe bananas and an open container of Tofutti Better than Sour Cream that I wanted to use today, so this was my solution. I love it when I have a problem and the answer is cake, don’t you?

Sour Cream Banana Cake
Makes one bundt cake

1/3 Cup Canola Oil
1 Cup Tofutti Sour Cream
1/3 Cup Soymilk
1 tsp Vanilla
3 Medium Ripe Bananas, mashed

2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/4 Cups Sugar
2 Tbs Cornstarch
1 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350º F.

Whisk all the wet ingredients together in a medium bowl until smooth. Set aside. Whisk dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Spray your bundt pan with cooking spray, or lightly grease. Flour the bundt pan with some of the dry mix, pouring excess back into the bowl when finished.

Mix wet ingredients into the dry, adding a tablespoon or so of soymilk if needed. Batter will be thick but not dry. Pour evenly into the bundt pan and bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool completely before removing from pan.

Serve with powdered sugar and fresh strawberries.

    wouldn’t you know it? I’ve also got an open tub of Tofutti sour cream! And, a book club coming up that needs a treat… hmmm!

    Oh Lolo, this looks so good! Too bad I’m a little burnt out on bananas right now. I just made a loaf of banana split bread, but the next time I have a hankering for banana, this is my jam.


    P.S. Guess who got a new oven!!

    This cake looks really yummy. Everything on your fabulous blog does!
    Unfortunately I will never be in the position to have an open container of tofutti sour cream because they don`t sell this stuff over here in Germany. (They don’t sell any vegan sour cream as far as I know.) Do you think some silken tofu would do the job as well?

  4. Lolo

    Amey – Yay! I hope the cake turns out for you!

    Amy – You got a new oven! That’s awesome! Take pics so I can gawk at it!

    Vincent – I know, right? Pie is also always acceptable. Thanks!

    Sandy – Speaking of pie, it’s almost time to make one for you!

    Katie – Thanks!

    Mihl – Thanks for the comment! I’ll have to do some testing to see what else will work in this cake. I want to know, too, since it’d be nice not to have to buy tofutti just for the cake. I’ll let you know when I figure it out!

    Nikki – I bet it would, but we’ll need to do some “research” – wanna help? :)

    Mikaela – Thank you! Bundt cakes are fun because they’re pretty no matter what!

    Sheree – Thank you! I hope it you like the recipe!

    I just made this again, and since I only had a tablespoon of Tofutti sour supreme, I made up the rest with (plain) soy yogurt. Worked very well. I might add a squeeze of lemon next time for some added sour.

    I made this cake, but only had 1 banana on hand. So I used the banana and about 1/2-3/4 of a cup of leftover steamed sweet potato that I had in the fridge. The cake was a huge hit-not dry at all and with a firm exterior (like that of a muffin top)-YUM!

    Made this yesterday for my sister’s birthday (in a tube pan rather than a bundt pan, heh), and none of us could stop eating it. So moist, so delicious! I subbed one cup of WW pastry flour for one of the cups of regular flour and it was still amazing, and topped it with powdered sugar and cinnamon. It was for my sister’s birthday, and she loved it! :D

  8. Jennifer

    I made this for my family on the weekend and it was delicious! Everyone LOVED it – I’ll add it to my favorites! Thank you!

    Flat out the best banana bread vegan or non-vegan ever! Wonderful texture, not too heavy and avery nice banana taste. I made this in a large sized muffin pan and got six muffins with a domed top. This is definitely finding a permanent spot in my recipe files. Thanks for sharing.

    I’ve been going through your recipes. I just became veg a little less than a year ago…and to tell you the truth, I’m not a healthy one. I was hoping to find some meal recipes that might hide the taste of veggies..I was wrong..All I could look at was the desserts! Curse you!(; Then I saw this..and I LITTERALLY licked my lips..
