Recipe by Redneck Epicurean
I have no clue where I got this recipe, but nobody in my family or church can get enough. The first time I made it, it was for my birthday dinner. I invited Mom, Pop, and Chris over and they loved it. My pop isn't crazy about cakes like this, but he ate two pieces. I took it to an eatin' meetin' and didn't get to bring home a crumb. You have to keep it in the refrigerator, so make room for it. It's also a very pretty cake.

- 1 cup ripe banana, sliced

- 1⁄3 cup oil
- 3 eggs
- 1 (16 ounce) can coconut pecan frosting

- 1 (60 g) milk chocolate candy bars (I use Hershey's)
