This is very good, moist banana cake. Liked the peanuts in it and on top for added crunch. Thank You. Made for ZWT7~Emerald City Shakers.
This is very good. Not to sweet. A tender crumb with a nice crunch on top from the nuts. I used unsalted nuts. I added 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon cardamom. Next time I`ll sprinkle some sugar on top with the nuts. Thanks Made for ZWT 2011
