The recipe didn't work for my family. It turned out to be too heavy like a banana bread not a cake, which I think is in the tittle name. Also the butter, cheese and I used cool whip blended together was also heavy and left a very oily after feel of oil deposits on the roof of the mouth. Maybe the cake could use beaten egg whites at the end folded in, and or more baking powder to lighten that part up. And the butter left out of the frosting, and use less powdered sugar in the frosting, and use as a filling instead. Sorry I couldn't give a better review, but just not to our family liking.
