    Tamaretta's Note:

    This was another recipe probably cut from the Houston Chronicle. It was attributed to Bernadine Pyburn who says "This is my favorite banana cake. I collect recipes and found this one when I lived in Waco in 1965. The frosting is absolutely delicious." Prep and cooking times are estimates as I have not yet prepared this cake.
