This is a wonderful, moist banana cake. This can also be made in mini loaf cake pans also, they freeze very well. This cake is even better the next day.

Truly a delight! Moist and tender inside with that lovely crisp crust on the outside that is the mark of a truly great banana bread if you ask me. This is a very sweet cake and made a huge loaf that overflowed my pan slightly, so next time I may make a regular loaf and a mini loaf from one batch.

This was lovely! It was moist in the middle and crisp around the edges and smelled and tasted wonderful. Just a heads up that it took about 2 hours to cook - it could be my oven, but thought I would mention it. :o)

I wanted something a little different for dessert and had some ripe bananas so I thought I would give this a was wonderful! I didn't have any nuts to add, which would have made it even better, but the chocolate chips helped make up for it. I;ll be making this one again for sure.
