Blue Ribbon Banana Cake

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Courtly

This won 1st place in the cakes division at the Mayfest festival. I've made it a couple of times and it is soooo good!! If you let the cake set with the frosting on it for a little while the frosting gets hard and crunchy, i love it that way!!

This cake was awesome!! I made it into cupcakes and used a caramel frosting (didn't have the cream for the included frosting) and each one was gobbled up! I won't be needing any other banana bread recipes because from now on, this one takes the cake! Ha!
