Delicious!! I only had about 1 cup of mashed banana, but this cake still turned out beautifully. Didn't put frosting on cake, ( a personal choice) as it was moist and tasty enough. Just had some next day for morning tea, stays really moist and fresh. Great recipe.

Really quite a lovely recipe. We made cupcakes instead of cake and baked them for 20 minutes at 350. My only other change was to use 1 cup buttermilk instead of 3/4 C. sour milk. Thank you for a great recipe.

DIVINE! I have made this a couple of times now and it is soooo good. I make a slab using a 9x13 and i don't ice it, just eat it as is (it's like a cakey brownie). Served this evening with some vanilla ice cream and fresh strawberries, ohhh so heavenly! Thanks so much for posting this recipe :)
