No-Bowl Banana Cake

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by pansies

Finally tried this cake a few days ago after having it in a folder since 1981. It worked very well. I did not try it with the frosting since I served it as a simple snack cake to pack in lunches. I do believe I am in love with no-bowl cakes! I baked this in an 8 inch square pan and it needed the 35 minutes in my oven.

Great easy to make cake. Used 2 1/2 smallish bananas. Cooked in a small loaf tin for about 45 minutes in the oven. Beautiful moist cake. Frosted with lemon cream cheese frosting and sprinkled with chopped walnuts. Photo also being posted
