This is truely a nice banana cake. I had only one banana and used lemon flavouring it was delicious and the texture was light and moist too. i also used self raising flour and added 1 tsp soda, 1tsp baking powder since you did not specify the type of flour to use. i will make it again but with less sugar because for me its too sweet. Thanks for sharing
This cake is very tender and moist. It is a great way to use up those ripe bananas. ***1 cup mashed bananas=2-3 medium bananas*** Also, this is an 8-inch layer cake, so the recipe makes about 12-16 servings. GREAT with cream cheese frosting (8-oz. cream cheese, 1/2 cup butter, 1 lb. powdered sugar, and 1 tsp. vanilla- beat on high until light and fluffy).
This was a really delicious cake. Mine got done sooner, after about 25 minutes, but I was using a 9-inch pan size. It didn't rise very high and seemed to flatten out a little after it cooled, but I might have stirred it a little too much or something. I will definitely make this again. It's a keeper.
