We loved this cake. It's totally delicious. The instructions need a bit of work. It doesn't say whether or not to pack the brown sugar, so I packed one cup and not the other -- that worked fine. It took me more than 20 minutes to bring everything together -- chopping walnuts, mashing bananas, mixing, measuring etc. By the way, you need a really large bowl to hold all the ingredients. I didn't know whether to grease and flour the baking pan, but did both. I cooked this in a 9x13 pan, and rightly thought that a half batch of frosting would be plenty for that single surface -- and for no lumps, it's a good idea to sift the icing (confectioner's) sugar. Great cake. Thanks for posting.
