      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.

      I followed the ingredient part of this recipe as it was written. However, I did make some adjustments to the way that it is put together, as it made a little more sense to me the way I did it. I added all of the _wet_ ingredients (including the sugar) together and used a hand mixer to blend together. I then folded in the dry ingredients, Turned out great. Now my _problem_ is whether to use the classic butter cream frosting or to go a little more out there and dream up a good chunky peanut butter/cream cheese frosting. I think that I%u2019m leaning towards the latter. Either way, great recipe and will be making this one again.

      Lovely and moist, with a nice banana flavor. Not too overpowering.
