1/4 cup butter -- softened
2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
4 medium bananas
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup light karo
1/2 cup boiling water
4 large egg whites -- stiffly beaten

Preparation / Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar well. Add eggs one at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition. Mash bananas and mix in the baking soda. Add to creamed mixture, alternating with buttermilk. Beat until smooth. Grease 4 (8-inch) cake pans and pour batter into them. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool. Frost with icing. May be prepared 1 day in advance. This is a very large, moist cake. ICING: Mix sugar with Karo; add to the boiling water and stir over medium heat. When the sugar has completely dissolved, remove from heat and cool; then pour very slowly into stiffly beaten egg whites, beating constantly. Continue to beat until icing is stiff enough to spread.
