Yield: Two small cast iron skillet cakes

Now, this skillet banana cake is perfect for bananas sitting on your kitchen counter that are looking a tad bit puny.


  • Preheat oven to 375
  • 1 boxed cake mix, white or vanilla
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup oil
  • 8 oz. mascarpone, room temperature
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 ripe bananas, small to medium, mashed
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • 3-4 Tbl. powdered sugar for dusting/garnish
  • 2 Tbl. honey, optional


Grease very well (I like to use Crisco.) two small cast iron skillets (about 6-7” diameter). You can use an baking dish or baking loaf pans.

Put the cake mix and ground cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Mix together.

In a 4-cup measuring cup (or small medium mixing bowl), combine the oil, mascarpone, buttermilk and eggs. Use a hand mixer on low to combine well. Add the mashed bananas and mix into a completely blended wet mixture.

Pour into the cake mix/cinnamon. Blend well with the hand mixer. Fold in the walnuts and raisins. Divide the batter into the two greased skillets.

Bake for about 32 to 37 minutes in a 375 preheated oven or until a thin skewer comes clean from the center. The tops of the cakes will also be showing cracks and crevices.

Remove to a cooling rack. Cool completely. Take a butter knife and gently go around the perimeter to loosen the cake.

Flip onto a large piece of wax or parchment paper, then slide your hand under the paper and REflip onto your cake stand (top side of the cake up). Dust with powdered sugar. Drizzle with a tad of honey (totally optional!).


Not to worry, you can make this cake in a baking dish or loaf pans.

It keeps well for several days. Very moist and tender. Just cover it well.

If you don't have bananas, you can substitute applesauce!
