A good cake to use up overripe bananas. Always given good comments about this.

Wanting a change from the usual recipe I use, I tried this one earlier today with wonderful results. A nice moist cake, it rose well and tastes great. I would have to say better than the old recipe I was using, so I will definitely be making this again soon. I made my cake in a loaf pan and baked for 45 minutes. Thanks Tracey_B!
