This is a very moist cake. I have been requested to bring this to every pot luck we have at work. The cake is also very good without frosting, or sprinkled with powdered sugar.

Yummy! Made this for my son's 2nd birthday for a monkey themed party. It went over well with the the birthday boy and guests. Made 1 1/2 recipe to put in a sheet pan, I thought it came out great. Thank you for the recipe!

This recipe was excellent. That being said--it was a great jumping off point. I knew, for our family that it had too much sugar. I decreased it by 1/c and then used half brown and half white. I added a tsp of cardamom, a Tbsp EACH of vanilla and banana extract. I always add a 1/8 of a tsp or so of organic xanthan gum to my baked goods. This ensures an excellent crumb. But no matter what I do, if the base recipe isn't good, mine doesn't come out. This was excellent , and mine was terrific. Thanks for a great recipe.

This is a great banana cake recipe! Nice, moist cake and super frosting. I have made it as written and also modified to be vegan for my vegan family members. To make it vegan, I substituted coconut oil for the butter/margarine, almond milk for the milk, and a flax seed meal egg substitute (for each egg; mix 1 tblsp flax meal and 3 tblsp water, let set 20 minutes, mix in a pinch of baking powder just before adding to the recipe). The vegan version was very well received by everyone.
