Made this as a quickie when my son showed up with his girlfriend. I used 1 1/2 cups of toddler banana babyfood, which is the quick equivalent of mashed banana. I added walnuts. Baked and served in an 8x8 glass square pan. Blended together 8 oz. cream cheese with 1/2 cup of sugar for a quick frosting. Got rave reviews fresh from the oven. It was even better when we polished off the last chilled pieces later that evening. This is a keeper.
i found that if you ice the cake with 250g of phillidelphia cream cheese and 4tsp of fresh lemon juice.....it truly puts the icing on the cake...this a great cake that many aussies really enjoy!!...easy and a fantastic taste..very filling also!
Don't throw out those too-soft bananas, make this delicious easy cake! This recipe was really good although I had to increase the cooking time a little. I cooked it in a loaf pan and used a vanilla butter icing. Very good!
