Banana Cake

2 cups sifted cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 1 /2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon extract
2 eggs beaten
1 cup mashed banana
1/2 cup buttermilk

Mix and sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Cream butter and sugar until light. Beat in vanilla, lemon extract and eggs. Add flour alternately with buttermilk. Pour into 2 greased and floured 9-inch cake pans. Bake at 325F. about 30 minutes or until it tests done.

Note: If you wanted to flavor it with chocolate I think about 1/3 cup cocoa could be subbed for an equal amount of flour.
