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.
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!
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.
Great taste, very moist. famliy like it very much
I was very happy with this cake. its the fist cake I have ever made and it was easy and the directions were great. thank you
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.
I substituted half a teaspoon of vanilla with imitation butter. I also melted sugar, butter and pecans with some vanilla and imitation butter and put them at bottom of pan so they would be on top. And I used 7 bananas instead of 4 which helped it be more moist. It turned out phenomenal. Best I've had. I'm saving recipe.
This is THE BEST banana cake I have ever tasted or made. I made it as is (well I didn't have butter and did substitute margarine). It came out PERFECT. I will definitely be experimenting with the addition of nuts and/or apples. I also glazed it with an apple cider glaze. Just amazing. Highly recommend.
I made this recipe yesterday for my two grandsons and myself. I am taking care of them for a week while their parents are gone. I LOVED this recipe Banana Bundt Cake!! I did add 1 cup of mini chocolate chips. The only thing that bothered me is the outside was a bit crusty. I am not using my pans, was it the pan? Otherwise it was VERY moist, and so so good. I am trying to stay out of it.
