    Made this as a quickie when my son showed up with his girlfriend. I used 1 1/2 cups of toddler banana babyfood, which is the quick equivalent of mashed banana. I added walnuts. Baked and served in an 8x8 glass square pan. Blended together 8 oz. cream cheese with 1/2 cup of sugar for a quick frosting. Got rave reviews fresh from the oven. It was even better when we polished off the last chilled pieces later that evening. This is a keeper.

    Don't throw out those too-soft bananas, make this delicious easy cake! This recipe was really good although I had to increase the cooking time a little. I cooked it in a loaf pan and used a vanilla butter icing. Very good!

    really yummy! forgiving and flexible recipe. I actually changed it up by adding a couple of handfuls of different grains/seeds,substituted 1/4 of the flour with wholemeal flour and sprinkled rolled barley on top before baking, as well as cutting the sugar down by half, and it was still moist & plenty sweet.

    I love this cake! I did however put applesauce instead of butter it cut back on the calories and it tastes the same.

    Very nice cake - quick to put together and tastes great. I frosted with cream cheese frosting and my co-workers loved it! I did substitute applesauce for a little of the butter to reduce the fat with great results.

    DD (3) and I made this for our cooking time today as she wanted banana cake instead of banana bread. Very easy, quick to make, and so yum! I did grease and flour the pan (recipe didn't specify), and it came right out after cooling a bit in the pan. Also, I had to guess as to the amount of butter (125 grams = how many tablespoons?); we used 1 stick plus 1 TBS and it turned out fine. It did take 40 minutes to bake, but I think my oven is off. Definitely a keeper.
