Came out great for a chocolate Easter cake. I made an almond cream cheese frosting instead of a chocolate glaze to make it more Spring-like. Very moist and the banana is definately the strongest flavor coming from the cake. Will definately make again.
Yum! This cake was gone in no time. It was really light and moist.I used butter. I cut the sugar down to 1c and I also didn't make a glaze for it and it was delicious and sweet enough for us. My boyfriend went out and bought more bananas for me to make it again!
This was awesome! I made it for my Dad's birthday and he just loved it. Along with everyone else at the party. My only problem was it stuck in my bundt pan some, but I think that is my fault. I sprayed the pan really well... but didn't flour it... so might have to try that next time... and there will definitely be a next time!!! Thanks for a great recipe!
