"This great cake was shared by a fellow poster named Carmen on a cooking board I frequent and was quite the hit with those who tried it, myself included! This originally came from a Taste of Home publication submitted by Oma Rollison. This is terrific and needs no frosting making it a perfect snack cake."

"It was delicious! I did not add any nuts since my family does not like them, but in its place added Chocolate chips. It came out great! Very moist cake that is not rich and gives you the full feeling and it did not induce any guilt feelings since I only used chocolate chips. :) It was great for after school snack with some milk for my middle school kids."
"10 stars!! So moist and flavorful. We all loved it. The kids have made me promise to make it again soon. :) The only thing I did differently was to use only 1 cup of sugar and omit the walnuts (I was out). It turned out beautifully! Thanks for posting!"
"This is the recipe I never knew I was looking for. I don't think I will be inclined to make banana bread when this cake is much better and really not as much fat as most banana bread recipes. More often than I should, I buy more bananas than we can use. Now I may do it on purpose! I used pecans instead of walnuts because that's what I had but I do think walnuts would be better. I also made a little powdered sugar, vanilla glaze that I poured over the cake while still warm. I'm not going to admit how many pieces I ate last night but I will hit the gym a little harder today. Thank you for posting this recipe."
"WOW! All my friends like it. Thanks for sharing."
"I make this recipe almost weekly for "coffee and..." at Church. I was sick a few weeks ago, and my husband told me several people asked where the banana bread was. I'd say it's a hit!! I make it with plain fat free yougart sometimes, and use whole wheat flour most of the time. I've made it with pecans, or walnuts, but often leave out the nuts, and it's great every time! Thanks!!"
"Just made this and substituted chocolate chips for nuts (same quantity). I used just a scant less butter because I was worried about the extra oil in the chocolate chips. It turned out perfect! Made it for a special treat for my boys after their last basketball game. Wonderful served with a little vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup. YUMMMMM!!!"
"Nice light texture. I had to use 1/4 cup powdered sugar, as I ran out of granulated. I took a previous reviewer's suggestion and sprinkled my piece with cinnamon sugar, which was delicious. Thanks for posting, Tebo. Roxygirl"
"Healthy recipe.I am giving it 4 stars only because I found that it was good when warm,but became sort of rubbery after it cooled completely.The taste was very good though. Kept well too upto 4 days.overall,healthy and nice recipe though."
"My whole family loved this cake. I agree that it is somewhat like a bread, but it seemed lighter to me..."
"This cake is really moist delicious, I cut back on the cooking time by about 10 min. (my oven overheats) and I used only 1 cup of sugar. and added unsweetened dried cranberries, ground flax seeds and fine bran flakes for a little fiber boost. Will definately make again."
"This is an excellent cake! A tastely alternative to banana bread. I sprinkled it with a cinnamon and powered sugar. I will be making this again and again."
"I tried this recipe, I did use the sour cream. The only change I made is I added a little banana extract for a little more flavor. However I would not call this a cake, I think it is more like a moister version of banana bread. I would make this again. Thanks for the recipe!!"
"Made as written except substituted whole wheat flour for 1/2 of the flour listed and used vanilla bean instead of the vanilla extract. This turned out wonderfully moist and delicious. Loved by my family and the coworkers that had some today. Will definitely make again."
"This was pretty good.. tasted pretty much like the standard banana bread. I used vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream because I had no sour cream and I added cinnamon. It came out pretty moist almost a little gummy. I don't know if it should have been in the oven longer but when I tested it with a toothpick it came out clean and I did not want to overbake.. Thanks"
"Loved this cake thanks,will make often."
"Moist and truly delicious! I was also out of sour cream and used yoghurt instead, worked perfectly!"
"This cake is soooooo good!!! It's incredibly moist and I love the walnuts in it, for both flavour and texture. When I found out I had a mere 1/3 cup of sour cream in the fridge, I added plain yogurt and ricotta cheese to make up the difference. Hmmmm, I may have to use that combo again! Thanks for posting!"
"Good banana cake. Very quick to put together and moist when it was done. I Couldn't find my bundt pan so used a tube pan and it worked just fine. Put a sour cream frosting on it when cool. 4 oz. cream cheese, 1/4 c. sour cream and 1/3 c. powdered sugar."
"my family loved this recipe. thanks for posting it! i onlt did 1 thing different. instead of dusting it with powdered sugar i made a brown sugar frosting. it made the cake even more creamier. kudos Tearanii for a great cake!!"
