Banana Cake

Recipe by Melanie Jackson

My absolute favourite Banana Cake recipe. Yum! Makes either 1 9x13 or 2 9 inch cake layers.

Wonderful recipe. A keeper. I made it per directions the first time and it was great. The second time I used 1 1/3 cup white sugar and 1/3 cup light brown sugar and added about tsp of vanilla. It was awesome. I will never buy a box mix of banana cake ever again. This is just too good and too easy to make! Thanks for sharing it.
