      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!
