I'd like to give this a 3.5/5 but rounded up to be nice. The cake is amazingly quick and easy to make (and I mixed it all by hand). I replaced half of the flour with self-raising flour and it came out extremely light, fluffy and moist. The reason it isn't really a four is because it is a bit bland. It is a nice basic recipe to play with. I will try and add choccie chips, nuts, maybe some rum. I also like the idea of using it as a base cake for other desserts as Mirj suggested. Thanks for posting
This was the perfect solution for a very busy Friday afternoon. I had some bananas going brown and mushy, and the food processor was out and I didn't feel like shlepping out my stand mixer. This makes a dense, chocolatey cake with a subtle banana flavoring. Unfortunately, it was not the hit I wanted it to be. A few slices were eaten, the rest frozen to be used in a trifle dessert soon. I will make this again, simply because it's so easy, and a good cake. Thanks for the recipe!
This is a quick simple and tasty cake. Not too sweet. I used the second method of mahing the banana and stirring in the remaining ingredients and baked it in one square cake tin and it was fine. I iced this with Vanilla Butter Icing #23465 with topped it off perfectly.
