Better Than Sex Cake with Bananas

Top Review by Brenda Chandler

I usually bake cakes from scratch only, but this recipe sounded good because I love pineapple and bananas. This cake was very easy to make and tasted good and was more delicious 2 days later. I think I will try it again using a scratch cake and drain the pineapple somewhat so the cake will be less soggy. All the people who tried it loved it, even my husband who insists I bake from scratch.
