This is a tasty, dense cake. I used VERY ripe bananas, but it did not turn out very sweet. I would like it a bit sweeter, but the family liked it and it is a BIG cake. Great for company or bake sales, as stated. Thanks!

I made this cake and it is really great! I only used 1/2 the ingrediants as it seemed like a ton and I made two round cakes. I also added some vanilla and brown sugar to the cake mix. In the middle of my two round cakes I made a peanut butter bananna fluff. And topped it with the icing here except it seemed a little thin so I added more powerded sugar and some corn starch. THANK YOU!

my comment is as follows:I liked the cake but it was very large and Heavy. I thought it would have been light since the batter was. It did not rise
