      The star rating is for the cake which was delicious and worth the effort. I baked it in a 9x13 pan for 35 minutes. However, I had a problem with the frosting being too dry. I added an extra 2 ounces of cream cheese and some cream to try to salvage it. The end result was a frosting that was too sweet for our tastes. I would make the cake again, thanks chef.

      Tried this recipe after previous few unsuccessful attempts with banana cake (some other recipe). Followed every part of the instruction and the cake turned out excellent. The only addition that I did was to add a little more milk than mentioned in the ingredients list to keep the right consistency of the batter. I was completely satisfied. Thanks

      Thank you so very much for this recipe! The cake turned out just right, a delicious treat for our party. I ended up baking the cake for just over 45 min in all, and it was soft and fluffy inside, a lovely brown crust outside. I did add an extra 2 oz of cream cheese for the frosting as suggested by the other reviewer, and it was great too. I would repeat this recipe, thank you once more.
