This is so moist and good. My kids love it, and it makes a great after school snack. If you'd rather ,you can omit the nuts. Also cream cheese frosting works well with this too. UPDATE: to prevent graininess from the brown sugar in the frosting, mix the brown sugar and milk together in a sauce pan and cook on medium heat till sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool and mix w/ other frosting ingredients with a hand held mixer till smooth.

Good Cake. I tried you suggestion with heating the brown sugar and milk and I had to throw it out and start over again because it separated before all the sugar melted...I cooked it on 2 (low). Maybe try it with the butter, but I'd remove the suggestion - doesn't work!

This is a very nice banana cake and a great way to use up those "beyond ripe" bananas. I frosted it with Recipe #68356 as I have been looking for something to try that frosting recipe on and it was great!
