4 eggs
2 C mashed ripe bananas (about 4 medium)
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 1/2 C all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda

1 C chopped pecans -- toasted.

1 pkg cream cheese -- (8 oz) softened

Toasted chopped pecans

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in bananas and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Stir in Pecans.

Pour into three greased and floured 9-in. round cake pans. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

For frosting, beat cream cheese, butter and sugar in a small mixing bowl. Add vanilla. Spread between layers and on top of cake. Sprinkle with pecans.
