Yesterday when I found this recipe, I was wondering why there are twelve reviews and NO PICTURES. Now I know why - once baked, this cake doesn't last long enough to snap a photo! I was really wary of creating a totally pareve banana cake - no butter, no sour cream. I usually substitute tofutti sour cream in a regular cake, but didn't have any this week, so I made this recipe instead. It was PERFECT! Nobody even noticed the switch. I made it with my usual topping - chocolate chips, cinnamon and brown sugar: pour just under half the cake batter into the pan and spread it out, sprinkle with half the chip mixture, then spread the remaining cake batter over and sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chip mixture. It is now GONE, so like everybody else, I cannot submit a picture of it ... maybe next time!
Hit! I topped mine with a thin layer of Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread) and chocolate sprinkles.<br/><br/>Watch the cook time - mine baked faster.<br/><br/>Served with vanilla ice cream and/or yonanas (pureed frozen bananas)...
Made this yesterday and it is almost completely gone! Absolutely delicious. I subbed a little less than half the oil with applesauce, used a 1/4 cup whole wheat flour, and sprinkled some pecans on top. DELICIOUS!
