I am not a fan of banana anything, but this cake sure changed my mind! It's easy to whip up and tastes like a million bucks. Made as is without the banana creme...added a smidge of vanilla to the icing and sprinkled chopped pecans on top. This is definitely going into the keeper file! Thanks for posting!

This is a very tasty cake and it was devoured immediately. I did not use the banana liquor and I increased the cinnamon by a tiny bit. This is a nice, light cake and that is what we were looking for. I have a feeling that it would keep quite well but it probably won't ever stay around long enough to test that theory out. I'll be making this often so thanks for the great recipe.

SO moist! I did not add the liquor, only because I did not have any. I used 3 large ripe bananas. This was perfect! Big hit!
Thanks

I cooked this cake for me employees and they all said it was too doughy.

I'm not sure why, but I thought this was just OK. I used a generic yellow cake mix, so maybe that was the problem. I thought it was a little dry, and I tasted too much cinnamon. Frosted this with cooked white icing. I took it to a party and it was totally devoured, so somebody liked it!

This was excellent!! I had four bananas that I needed to do something with and it had been ages since I'd made banana cake--what a treat for dessert last night! I had to use a white cake mix as I didn't have a yellow cake on hand and it still turned out great! Thanks for posting this keeper!

I am really fickle and particular about the recipes i use to bake with. I must say this was an excellent recipe!!! I believe I am the first reviewer to include that I did indeed use the creme de banana. It added a really good flavor to the cake!!! Creme de banana is not very expensive and can be found at most larger liquor stores. I added it to the cream cheese icing as well. This is a keeper. Once you start eating its hard to stop!! Thanks Barb!!!

Moist and delicious! I made it with 3 bananas, no extra banana flavorings and I doubled the frosting. I'll make this again.
