Thanks so much for posting this recipe. I have moved to New Zealand and lost my little Crisco/Robin Hood booklet this one was in. Spent the day looking through every book, then thought I would try here. This is such an awesome cake, great banana flavour. Going to make it now. Thanks again. Kia Ora

This cake was surprisingly light & fluffy for the amount of bananas in it. I used a 10" bunt pan to bake & it took 45 minutes. I didn't have white baking chocolate only regular white chocolate and I think it turn out very good. For the icing, I only sprinkled shaved white chocolate on top of the cake once iced. Thanks for a great recipe!
