    Several years ago Great-Grandma passed away and I inherited her collection of handwritten recipes. This is one of those receipes. Another use for ripe bananas.

      I had bought some apricot preserves for another recipe and had 3/4 of a jar left, which my DH said he didn't like so made this cake. He loved the cake - I didn't tell him there were apricot preserves in it until after he ate it. I will probably be buying more apricot preserves just to make this again.

      Wow, this is one great recipe. I followed the recipe exactly and these Banana Squares turned out perfectly! This cake was so very moist and the flavour of the banana with the apricot and nuts was just the thing for DH, who adores anything with nuts in it. He loved it! A very easy recipe to follow and the outcome of this recipe was fantastic. Thanks PaulaG, will be making this again.

      I served this to our Saturday visitors and they swooned. Swooned! :D I'd found a jar of apricot-peach preserves that I used and it turned out sooo delicious. Thank you, Paula, and your great-grandmother!
