  1. I have been looking for the ultimate recipe for banana cake for some time. This was excellent and truly seemed more like a "cake" than a bread-type loaf. I did throw in an extra banana, since I had one to use up. I also added a bit of salt. I saved some mashed banana to make the frosting, but my husband couldn't wait for the cake to cool before he ate some, so I didn't bother with the frosting. I think the frosting sounds yummy. Next time I will make the frosting. I like this cake very much, it had a good banana flavor and nice texture.
  2. Awesome! Moist and full of flavor even without the icing!
  3. Wonderful cake! I had 4 very ripe bananas and needed to do something, but didn't have ingredients for banana bread. This was great and so simple! Thanks for sharing, will make again!
  4. I have been looking for a really great banana cake recipe for a long time and I found it!!! My family and myself LOVED this is a keeper and I was asked to make it again. We paired it with a chocolate frosting as we are all "chocolate nuts" in our home and it was just delicious.
  5. I was surfing the net looking for a banana cake recpie and I found this one. It was so delicious! I made it for my family and the loved it as well. The only thing my stove broke down when I was getting ready to bake the cake so it rested for about 10-15mins. I also added more nuts and 2 more bananas because the bananas I had were too small. It also took 45miins to bake once the oven heated up. It was easy too make.
