A cake without shortening, oil or butter but moist sweet and simple to make from scratch. Is fun to bake and take or serve at home to friends and family. The recipe is always requested whenever I bring it to a gathering.

Yummy cake! Halved the recipe and used 3/4 cup sugar (half brown, half white) and this was still plenty sweet. Very quick to put together and also tasted great warm. Thank you for sharing!

Good quick cake recipe. Nothing fantastic, just a good dessert. I made according to recipe. Served with cool whip. It would be good frosted as stated.

This has been my stand-by cake for years. I use 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar which works better for me. Also, I use the same base recipe, minus the pineapple and add 3/4 to 1 cup low-fat buttermilk and 3 or 4 mashed bananas. You'll never make another banana cake recipe again. Yummy !!!!
