This is a rather unusually-flavored, but very good, cake. I think it would work well for bridal or baby showers--a good change from plain yellow or chocolate cake. The batter in this may seem runny, but that's how it's supposed to be before you put it in the oven!

Very good. Nice and moist cake. I was afraid that I had done something wrong as it was pretty runny, but it turned out just perfect. I topped it with banana frosting-Yummy. I didn't add the nuts and I used canola oil instead of veg.

I made this and it was excellent... The combination of bananas and cinnamon is great! The only things I had to improvise- I added a 1/2 cup cinnamon applesauce because I only had two bananas on hand, and added 3/4 tsp white vinegar to the milk since I didn't have any buttermilk. I didn't see salt listed in the ingredients, so I added 3/4 tsp and it turned out really tasty!

I made this & took it to a class. Everyone loved it. I used regular oats also. worked great. Topped with a cream cheese frosting and sprinkled walnuts over top. Highly recommend..
