Top Review by Katzen

My goodness, is this ever good! I love the icing, and I don't normally like cream cheese icing... although I do find I like it more and more, particularly this one. I really liked what whipping the egg whites did for this cake, too. I split this up into two 8x8 pans, so DH and I could each take one to work. Bake time was 30 minutes when done that way. Oh, and I added the oil in with the bananas - I didn't see where to add it in the directions. Thanks for the awesome recipe, Lorrie! Made for 1-2-3 Hits.
