I tried this, I used just over half the bananas because thats all i had but that certainly wouldn't have made much difference. I did not like this cake, it seemed to take forever to cook and then the bananas at the top had a burnt flavour.

The cake was moist and delicious...BUT..the sliced bananas in the topping were like rubber..had to remove them to enjoy the cake.
