This cake was often served by a lady in Indianapolis during the 1950s and 60s.  She shared it with family and friends at all types of get-togthers.  Enjoy!  She didn't share her frosting recipe so choose your favorite.  Personally, I like cream cheese frosting with it.

1 1/2 cups sugar, half brown
3/4 cup margarine
3 large mashed bananas
2 egg yolks
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup sour milk
2 1/4 cups sifted flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 egg whites, beaten to peaks
1 tsp vanilla

Cream together white and brown sugars and margarine.  Add mashed bananas and egg yolks.  Dissolve soda in sour milk.  Sift flour, baking powder together 3 times.  Add flour mixture alternately with milk and soda to the sugar-margarine mixture.  Add vanilla and fold in egg whites last, mixing until well blended.  Bake in two 9-inch layer pans, greased.  Bake at 375 for about 25 minutes or until done.
