Gorgeous cake. I made it for my son's 2nd birthday as bananas are his favourite. It was easy, moist, delicious. We served it warm with sweet whipped cream and it was gone within 5 minutes! Thanks for posting xx

Tonight was a total Kittencal dinner except for the vegetables. We had the Chicken Wellington with Creamy Mushroom Sauce, with the Easy Parmesan Potato Rounds and this for dessert. I really love your recipes. Keep posting them. ChefRaylene
