      This is an absolutely wonderful cake!I had to sample a piece, and as it was still pretty warm i was sure it wasnt at its best yet. But it was wonderful. Very moist very flavorful, just right. Very unique in that it uses a brown sugar frosting instead of the more common cream cheese type. Five stars for this. I love the heirloom recipes---:)--PeggyLynn

      My dh was in flavor heaven. He really enjoyed the flavor and texture of this moist, dense, banana cake. The brown sugar icing was a nice touch, although it did make the cake extra sweet. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

      We loved this cake! What a great cake and the caramel type frosting was out of this world. A nice change from the usual cream cheese fosting on most banana items. Glad I picked this one to try.
