Can not believe this recipe has been ignored for nearly 5 years! What a mistake. Delicious cake with lovely texture - totally a fast keeper that made excellent use of 2 rapidly darkening bananas. Toasted the walnuts until dark brown (more like a heaping cup) & mixed as directed. Used a mix of cut up Hershey's milk chocolate bars & dark chocolate Hershey's kisses. Made in a 9 x 13 inch pan - took an additional 20 minutes to fully cook - so worth the wait! From mixing to baking - done & washed up in under a hour. Will be using this for summer potlucks. Tastes even better the next day! Moist without being mushy or greasy - YAY! Plan to pair with fresh churned vanilla & nutmeg ice cream. Thanks Poutine for a real sleeper keeper!
