The coffee icing is what caught my attention with this cake recipe. I did not have instant coffee so I put just 1 teaspoon of regular ground coffee in the icing. This cake is
light and moist. The banana and coffee flavors go great together.

Potluck Banana Cake  
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs 
 1 teaspoon vanilla extract  
2 cups all-purpose flour  
2 teaspoons baking soda  
1/2 teaspoon salt  
1-1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3 medium)  
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream  
1/3 cup butter, softened  
2-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar  
2 teaspoons instant coffee granules 
 2 to 3 tablespoons milk
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with bananas and sour cream, beating well after each addition.  

Pour into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack. 

For frosting, in a small bowl, beat butter and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Dissolve coffee granules in milk; add to butter mixture and beat until smooth. Spread over cake. Yield: 12-15 servings.
