This is 6 stars! I made this for my family tonight. I baked the cake in 2- 8 inch pans and instead of pouring the Kaluha over the cake after it was done, I poured it into the cake batter. I substituted 2/3 cup of Kaluha for some of the water that the cake call for on the box. One of my nieces can't eat bananas so I split the dessert in two; made one with bananas and the other with strawberries. I ate half the banana one by my self.. It is soooo good! It reminds me of a dessert that my mother makes. Great recipe. Thanks for posting Rita L.
