    Linda C's Note:

    Trust me when I tell you this is one of the best banana cakes you will ever eat! One of my good friends shared this fantastic recipe with me many years ago-I hope you love the cake as much I do. (Note: To quickly ripen bananas, place in a brown paper grocery sack and tightly close top of sack. Check bananas periodically and remove from the bag when peels have turned completely black).

      Oh my. This was sooo good! My husband doesn't like bananas, yet he devoured this! I had 3 bananas that were just too ripe to eat, and I tire quickly of banana bread, so I went searching for a banana cake. I don't know why, but this one caught my eye. I'm so glad it did. I will definitely be making this again. Oh, and it has to have the frosting... just because it's that amazing!
