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!
A wonderful cake. Did not have almonds, use pecans. Used Dutch cocoa. A moist not too sweet cake. Served plain to family. A dusting of powdered sugar would be nice for company presentation. Next time I'll use filberts (hazelnuts) and Frangelico.
What a find! A great way to use up all of those spotty bananas instead of another loaf of banana bread. I left mine unadorned. It is lovely and sweet enough without any icing or glaze. This cake has a fine crumb and is very moist. I subbed out the almonds and almond liqueur/extract for banana liqueur, vanilla and a drop of orange extract; and added 1/4 or so cup of wheat germ. Like another reviewer I used Crisco... it was what I had on hand. Took the full 50 minutes in my oven. Just a lovely cake.
What a great tasting cake! Instead of margarine used crisco, used almond extract, also didn't toast the almond just cut them fine. I took this to a graduation party and it was liked by many people. Thanks for helping me use up some old bananas!
Excellent cake. I used this for my Dad's 74 birthday - he loved it. The cake is moist and the flavor is delicious. I did make it the night before to let the flavor intensify. I used a 10 inch angel food pan and I poured a chocolate glaze over the top. There was not a piece left. I already have requests from other family members for their birthday. Thanks for a great recipe.
This was good. I made it for a brunch and about half of it was eaten. My kids enjoyed getting to eat the rest. It's worth trying once.
The only problem with this cake is that is SO delicious that I am having a hard time not eating more than I should! Oh, my! This is wonderful! I used 4 bananas and butter, but wanted a soft cake so I didn't add the almonds. I also used a chocolate glaze instead. Incredibly delicious!
Love this cake! Let it sit for a day to allow the flavors to develop and it's even better. I will definitely be using this recipe over and over.
