This is a fabulous recipe! Very moist, packed with banana flavour! I also added in 2 cups of chopped apples to it, turned out perfect! It definitely tastes better the next day. I made a simple vanilla glaze to drizzle over the top. Thank you, blucoat, for sharing this wonderful recipe, definitely will be making it again!

This is the best banana cake I have tried and will be the only one I use now. I frosted the cake with a brown sugar frosting and my guests were licking their plates clean. Added bonus is that this cake uses only 1/2 C butter in the batter. Be sure to use a 12 cup bundt pan - mine was slightly smaller and the batter spilled over in the oven. Cook's error, not the recipe. Thanks for a great recipe.

Very good, very moist. I substituted half the sugar for brown sugar to deepen the flavor and poked the cake w/a chopstick to create holes then poured a maple syrup & water reduction over it. I used about 1/4 cup maple syrup and about a 1-2 Tbls of water....I then let that reduce for a few minutes and poured it all over the cake.

This banana cake truly is the best. It is moist, This is the second time I have used this recipe. The first time I used all yogurt instead of sour cream. This time I am using half cup of sour cream and half cup of buttermilk. This recipe is very versatile, meaning you can add things to it like the other people who commented on this did. I added 1 cup of walnut pieces which is very good. You can also add some raisins. Do yourself a favor and try this recipe it is sure to please. My neighbors loved it too!

I loved this cake as a base for the chocolate chip banana cake with peanut butter glaze that I made. I followed the recipe exactly but made the following changes:
My bananas weren't as ripe as I'd like them so I added two tablespoons of light brown sugar and a tablespoon of bourbon to the mash. I also added 1 1/2 cups of mini semi sweet chocolate chips at the end. The glaze I made was 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter and 1/3 cup cold water whisked together until smooth. Everyone LOVED it! Thanks for a fantastic recipe.

Great Bundt cake recipe ! I started with bananas that were almost completely black . I added one cup of coconut and one cup of white chocolate chips dusted with powdered sugar. It was like "sent to do"

Excellent, moist cake. Took only 58 minutes to bake in my oven, so you might want to check cake at 55 minutes or so. I made a vanilla glaze instead of lemon using 1 cup icing (powdered) sugar, 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla and enough milk to thin - add a teaspoon of milk at a time to reach desired consistency. Drizzle on cooled cake.

This is a five star banana bread. I loved it and didn't even think it needed nuts which I was initially concerned about. To quote a family member, "Perfection..I don't even like banana bread but I like this one." It's very moist and I made the recipe exactly how it reads using low fat sour cream and four very large overly ripe bananas.
