"This is a very moist cake. I have been requested to bring this to every pot luck we have at work. The cake is also very good without frosting, or sprinkled with powdered sugar."

"Yummy! Made this for my son's 2nd birthday for a monkey themed party. It went over well with the the birthday boy and guests. Made 1 1/2 recipe to put in a sheet pan, I thought it came out great. Thank you for the recipe!"
"I have made this cake often, and usually with 3 bananas. It is a lovely cake and the icing is to die for! Freezes well if you have any left!"
"This rating is for the icing only: the icing was way too sweet and almost no caramel flavor. I stopped adding confectioner's sugar when it go to the right consistency (which was only about 2 and 1/2 cups), but it was still all that you can taste....sugar."
"This cake was soooo good! I invited my mother-in-law over who asked to take some home. My husand ate two pieces. My mother LOVED the frosting. It was such a hit! I will be making this again. Thank you for sharing!"
"These were absolutely wonderful. I made a 3/4 recipe and it yielded 18 moist delicious cupcakes. My children started devouring them before I could even make the icing. The icing turned out like a caramel fudge on top which was perfect with the light fluffy moist banana cakes. My mom inhaled two when she came for dinner. I will quote my 3 1/2 year old who exclaimed "This is delicious" while stuffing his mouth. The first time he used the word delicious. I also gave six to my neighbours and they raved about them. Thanks so much. This is definitely a keeper and will be in the lunch boxes in September!"
"Omg!!! soooooo delicious :) Ionly made the frosting I made it to frost a banana cake an boy was it good! so easy to make i will defiently be making this again!!!"
"Wow! The icing is awesome! the cake really tastes and feels like banana bread. it turned out super moist and flavorful. Will definitely, definitely make this again! Husband loved it!"
"This was so very yummy and I got many compliments on it. It also got eaten right away. The icing is delicious and very easy to make. I'm not sure what I expected "banana cake" to taste like but I thought it would be a little lighter in weight and texture more like a true cake. I'm not sure if it depends on the number of bananas you put in but it really reminded me of a delicious banana bread-- heavier and denser than most cakes I bake. I will definitely be make this one again. Would be great with coffee."
"This is a great banana cake - the caramel frosting really makes it stand out. Thanks!"
"My husband and daughter demolished these. The frosting didn't turn out for me, but I will be attempting it again because everyone on here raved about it."
"Oh my! I make a lot of cakes and cupcakes and this recipe is my new favourite! Right now, I am putting blobs of that divine caramel icing on still warm cupcakes! I had to use cream in both the cake and the frosting because that's all I had. I didn't use as much icing sugar as called for either - just until it felt right. Wonderful!"
"Yummy! The cake was very moist. Didn't use the frosting as I don't particularly care for caramel so I topped it with my cream cheese glaze... delicious! Sprinkled walnuts over the whole thing. My family loved it! This recipe is a keeper. Our bananas were extremely ripe so it was the perfect amount of banana flavor! Thanks so much for posting this."
"Addicting; addicting; addicting... needed a little more banana flavor (I added 1 teaspoon banana flavoring to the 4 bananas I used and it still needed a little more flavor...for that reason I give the cake 4 stars, instead of 5) BUT the Frosting I give 6 stars, so it averages out to 5 stars. I changed the icing and brought the butter, brown sugar, and milk to a boil and immediately added 3 cups 10X sugar, beating it with a mixer until smooth...Make sure you sift the 10X sugar...I then poured the icing through a strainer as I iced the cake to get rid of any additional lumps of 10X sugar. "The icing is to die for!" I am going to put it on some pumpkin cookies next. Thanks, IamEarnie!"
"Had some black bananas and did not want to do banana bread yet again. Came across this recipe and SO glad that I did! I did use only 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar in the frosting and used unsalted butter in both the cake and the frosting. I also added 1 tsp. of vanilla to the cake mixture. I might try this with a cream cheese frosting next time. Thanks for posting, IamEarnie."
"very good cake that can stand all by itself. However, the frosting makes it go over the top. Frost your cake once the cake is cooled and just as soon as the frosting is made, as mine got stiff very quick. One of my guests ate three pieces and exclaimed "every bite is better than the one before""
"Made this cake last night for dessert. It is WONDERFUL!! The flavor combination of banana and caramel is perfect! I only had three ripe bananas - can't imagine how it could be any better with four. Probably used about 2 cups of powdered sugar -just kept adding until it reached the consistency I wanted. Will definitely be a keeper at my house!"
"This cake is wonderful!! The whole family agrees!!! Just a quick update!!! We put the leftover cake in the refrig and today it's even better cold!!! Sooooo Yummy!!!!"
"This cake is sooo good. I served this for dessert tonight and we all said this is a cake I will be making again."
"This was an awesome cake. I made this for company last night and everyone gobbled it up. My husband and father-in-law were hesitant about the frosting but after trying it the absolutely loved it. I'll make a double batch next time so we have some leftovers :) Thank you!"
"This was great! I took it to work and everyone loved it. The cake was very moist and the two flavors went well together. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks"
