These are awesome! Needed something easy for thanksgiving to go with hostess' pumpkin and cherry pies. Had bourbon on hand, not to mention bananas, and figured, what the heck! Very easy, quick, and delicious! Wonderful! (too much tasting the icing, perhaps?)

This is a lovely, dense and moist cake that is bursting with banana flavor! I think it was even better on the second day. I halved the recipe and made a single layer cake. The frosting is lighter than most cream cheese frostings, but very rich and flavorful with the bourbon.

I am only going to rate the cake because I didnt make the frosting I have a friend who is pregnant and can't have the booze. I used a whiskey sauce from another recipe.Bread Pudding Souffle With Whiskey Sauce which was really good over the cake and ice cream. The cake is a dense, delicious banana cake. It takes minutes to prepare and 30 minutes to bake. My husband is a banana loaf fan and loved the cake. Next time I will make the frosting with the bourbon. Thanks for a keeper.

This delicious, moist cake and its strangely soothing frosting is a big hit with the menfolk. Also, it keeps well. My hubby brings home an airplane bottle of bourbon from his business trips with hope that I'll bake this cake!

This was SOOOOO yummy! The cake was super moist and the frosting was super creamy because of the cream cheese. I think that 4 bananas is perfect because it wasnt too overbearing and allowed the other ingredients to be tasted as well. We had this last night and loved it. Thanks.
