      Absolutely the BEST banana cake I have ever made. I wasn't crazy about the frosting at first, but LOVED it on the cake; the banana and brown sugar worked perfectly together! I definitely recommend doubling the frosting and keeping it at a pourable/spoonable icing stage. One problem in the directions... it calls for baking powder which is not listed in the ingredient list. I added one teaspoon of baking powder along with the baking soda and it worked perfectly so I definitely recommend that. I also cut 1/4 cup out of the sugar, used skim milk, and omitted the walnuts. The cake was perfectly spongy, very banana-y, and kept moist for days! I wanted something different from the usual birthday cake and am so glad I made this one! I don't even feel the need to try any of those highly rated, popular recipes now because this one is absolutely outstanding! Thank you!

      This was over the top good. I loved the frosting! It was sort of carmel flavored. Got a compliment that it was probably the best he ever tasted! That says a lot. Thanks for a fantastic recipe!
